Sweeping social change is occurring in India with regard to the proposed transgender legislation and the enshrinement of associated rights. This progressive legislative change occurs as existing Indian law is profoundly reshaped by the judiciary with regard to other members of this sexually diverse group, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT group. Now as a group of immense interest within high-income countries, this article through Government, legal, and medical literature, explores the possible population of interest in India, relevant law and associated health disparities.
Metrics details. Lesbian, gay and bisexual LGB people may be at higher risk of mental disorders than heterosexual people. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of the prevalence of mental disorder, substance misuse, suicide, suicidal ideation and deliberate self harm in LGB people.
Lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender LGBT people seeking mental health treatment are likely to present with problems common to many patients such as mood and anxiety disorderspsychological conflicts, and maladaptive behaviors. Many of our treatment interventions do not significantly vary by the sexual or gender identity of our patients. While evidence-based standards of psychopharmacology and psychological interventions apply to all patients, we can enrich the care of LGBT persons with updated knowledge about risk factors in LGBT mental health and a familiarity with family, social, community, and professional resources allied with our efforts. The mental health of LGBT persons has become increasingly recognized as an important public health issue.
Are questions about your sexual orientation and gender identification making you feel confused, distressed and alone? Do you worry that someone you love may be targeted because of the way they look, act or dress? Or perhaps you have concerns for your personal safety, or worry that you will be fired or not hired for being visibly LGBTQ.
Not only are you in the minority, but you likely have always been painfully aware of how you are different from others. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman, it is very likely that you have been on the receiving end of discrimination, prejudice and homophobia at one time or another. You may be struggling with these very issues right now.
However, discrimination, prejudice, denial of civil and human rights, harassment and family rejection are still tragically common for people with these identities. LGBTQ people with mental health conditions may also find themselves fighting a double stigma. Confronting these challenges and mental health symptoms with an LGBTQ-inclusive therapist can lead to better outcomes, and even recovery.

Some LGBT people have very straightforward social experiences, perhaps even dating their high school's star quarterback on the sly and later coming out to little resistance. Other times, one might have a more difficult experience, and it could be helpful to find someone to talk to. Unfortunately, not only are many counselors unprofessional, there are many individuals and organizations that try to tell LGBT people that being LGBT in and of itself is the source of their life problems, and do their clients great harm in the process.
