On the last day of this week, Bisexual Health Awareness Month promotes mental health resources for bisexual+ youth.
Bisexual+ (e.g. bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, no label) youth often experience higher levels of mental health issues than their gay and straight peers, including suicidality, substance use disorders, depression, and anxiety. Therefore, it is important to connect these youth with bisexual-specific and -inclusive resources, programs, and services that can best serve their mental health needs.
