Pride in Health, mental health and wellbeing

Friday, February 24, 2023 Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds

Information and awareness event to support better conversation about mental health


As an LGBTQ+ person, your health concerns are in most ways the same as everyone else’s.

However, evidence in the UK and internationally indicates increased levels of common mental health conditions, with stigma and discrimination stopping people reaching out.

This event is open to adults (18+) who live, work or study in Leeds and would like to increase their understanding about mental health and is facilitated by people from the LGBTQ+ community.

Topics include:

  • Sexual orientation and mental health
  • Gender identity, transgender and non-binary awareness
  • Myths and the impact of stigma and discrimination
  • Encouraging an inclusive and mentally healthy service
  • Information about Leeds Recovery College mental health and wellbeing courses

Leeds Recovery College opened in 2019 and delivers a range of education and training courses that have been specifically designed to increase awareness and understanding of mental health, wellbeing and personal recovery.

Courses are co-designed and run by people with lived experience of mental health problems and health professionals, trainers and education providers who co-facilitate with them.
