Mental Health in the LGBTQ+ Community

Event held by HQA – HealthQueer Alliance on 02/02/2021:

HQA heard from a panel of mental health professionals involved with the LGBTQ+ community. We discussed mental health disparities and what we should know in our future careers to better understand and advocate for our patients. The panel was moderated by our very own Lee Collopy, LCSW of EAC’s LGBT+ Specialty Clinic and featured the below mental health professionals:

Dr. Michael Shapiro, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist
Cynthia Yanez, MSW, Social Worker at the Levin College of Law
Rebecca Frye, LCSW, Therapist at Gainesville Psychotherapy

Each of our speakers has years of experience with the LGBTQ+ community – we aim to take lessons learned by them into our future practice as inclusive physicians.
