The coronavirus pandemic has disproportionately pummeled LGBTQ+ communities, leaving a population already vulnerable suffering even deeper through health issues related to bias, access to care, and mental health. Many feel as if they have lost support through school and community closures, loss of jobs, and isolation from social groups.
In this session, we talk with Jack Turban, MD, who answers audience questions about LGBTQ+ mental health and addresses the mental toll that COVID-19 has had on the community.
