Recent studies show that more than half of our LGBTQIA+ young people are unable to get proper mental health care and support to ensure their overall wellness. Unfortunately, it’s our LGBTQIA communities across the country that are facing a number of challenges, with stigma and discrimination being two of the many reasons why depression rates remain consistently high within this population.

Dr. Christopher Palazzo, a primary care physician in Grand Rapids, as well as Dr. Lisa Lowery, section chief of pediatrics and adolescent medicine, both with Corewell Health discuss more about these mental health challenges and what’s being done to help here in West Michigan.
