LGBT young people’s mental health is in crisis.
We need your support now.
I hated myself so much because of my sexuality. What could have been some of the best days of my life were spend hiding away.
My teenage years are pretty much a blur because of all the problems that stemmed from my self-hatred over my sexuality. I became suicidal.
I look back and think what could have been some of the best days of my life were spent hiding away at home in case someone from school saw me.
I’ve yet to feel confident even mentioning that I’m LGBT to doctors and psychologists. I know I need help and don’t want to be denied it. So I hide it.”
