While depression and anxiety is generally becoming a more common experience in people’s lives, for lesbian, bisexual, queer and same sex attracted women, the rates of depression and anxiety are significantly higher. For those experiencing depression, their friends and partners, it can be a bewildering and frustrating time.
This workshop provides some insights into understanding depression and anxiety, why it seems to affect more lesbian, bisexual, queer and same sex attracted women, helpful hints on living with depression and how to support someone who is depressed or has an anxiety disorder.
