The Multicultural Action Center partnered with the University of Pennsylvania’s Collaborative on Community Integration of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities to produce two new resources released in 2009:

  • A Mental Health Recovery and Community Integration Guide for GLBTQI Individuals: What You Need to Know is a 12-page, full-color booklet that covers a range of key issues in mental health recovery and community integration, such as treatment and rehabilitation, financial support, housing, employment and peer support, with specific information to address the unique needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning and intersex individuals embedded throughout.
  • GLBTQI Mental Health: Recommendations for Policies and Services is a companion publication to the above booklet that provides important considerations for service providers and policy makers, including an assessment of the barriers faced by GLBTQI individuals seeking mental health care, recommendations for practical strategies to address these barriers and a resource list.
