Mental Health and Addiction Ministry

Mission Statement: Trinity Presbyterian Church Mental Health and Addiction Support Ministry exists to provide education with a focus on prevention, early intervention, referral assistance and to support recovery in a confidential, accepting and healing environment.

October is LGBTQ History Month
    The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community faces mental health condition just like the rest of the population. However, you may experience more negative mental health outcomes due to prejudice and other biases. Knowing what challenges you may face as a member of the LGBTQ community and how to find and work with LGBTQ-inclusive providers can help ensure more positive outcomes.
    LGBTQ individual are almost 3 times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition such as major depression or generalized anxiety disorder. This fear of coming out and being discriminated against for sexual orientation and gender identities, can lead to depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, thoughts of suicide and substance abuse.
