In February 2001, a Special Interest Group in Gay and Lesbian Mental Health was established in the College to promote discussion and research, provide expertise within the College and contribute to education. The remit of the group has expanded over the years to include issues related to gender identity. The Group’s aims are:
- To promote and research the mental health of LGBT people.
- To promote training for all mental health professionals regarding the mental health of LGBT people.
- To support and advocate for LGBT mental health professionals.
- To advise on mental health, social and other local and national policy relating to LGBT mental health.
The Executive meet roughly three times a year, including the SIG Annual General Meeting. More members are always welcome. The Executive can be contacted via the College.
