Service user information

There is a whole host of information and resources available to service users and their carers.

The information in this section is for people who are using or think they might need to use our services. A service user is sometimes called a client, customer, patient, user or a member of our services.

Mental health problems such as depression, self-harm, alcohol and drug abuse or suicidal thoughts can affect anyone, but they’re more common among people who are LGBTQ+.

Being LGBTQ+ does not cause mental health problems, but some experiences LGBTQ+ people go through can affect their mental health, such as discrimination, homophobia or transphobia, social isolation, rejection, and difficult experiences of ‘coming out’. In fact, 27% of LGBTQ+ people reported that they were worried, anxious or embarrassed about going to access mental health services.
