Sample Newsletter Summary
MindMapBC is a mental health service finder which helps people locate appropriate and accessible mental health services. It can be difficult to access mental health services, especially those that are affirming of LGBTQ2 (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, Two-Spirit, and other gender- and sexually-diverse) people. In addition to barriers that are commonly experienced by people of all sexual orientations and gender identities (e.g., cost, accessible location, embarrassment/shame), LGBTQ2+ people often face added barriers when navigating mental health supports. MindMapBC helps users to locate mental health services that are accessible, free or low-cost, and/or LGBTQ2+-affirming. Learn more at https://www.mindmapbc.ca.
