LGBTQIA+ support services

Mental health services provided by the NHS are accessible for everyone regardless of their background, identity, race or religion. However, some people prefer to access support that is specifically designed for people from their communities. We’ve put together a list of support services that are made for people in the LGBTQIA+ communities.
