Introducing True Colors

The LGBT community has a unique set of needs when it comes to mental health. Long stigmatized in society — longer than even those with mental health concerns — LGBT people often suffer from a double-whammy of prejudice and discrimination.

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce True Colors, a blog dedicated to the unique needs and challenges of the LGBT community. Hosted by Jeffrey Zacharias LCSW, CAADC, BRI-I, the blog will focus on the mental health and addiction issues in this community. Jeff is the Clinical Director at New Hope Recovery Center and you can learn more about him here.

Please give Jeff a warm Psych Central welcome over at his blog, True Colors.
