Support for the LGBTQ+ Community in Higher Education
Pride Month for Higher Education
Use these resources from TimelyMD, The Jed Foundation (JED), National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI), and Active Minds to help your campus advocate for LGBTQ+ students to feel supported not only during Pride Month, but year-round.
At TimelyMD, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of college students of all backgrounds, experiences, ethnicities, and identities, and empowering them to thrive in all aspects of their lives. Pride Month is a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, and it provides an oppportunity to raise awareness in higher education about the health and well-being needs of LGBTQ+ college students.
Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, a student mental health crisis existed on college and university campuses across the country. Demand for care was increasing, and wait times for mental health started to go from days to weeks. The pandemic increased levels of stress and anxiety to new heights, particularly for LGBTQ+ students. And the effects of the pandemic continue to impact student mental health today. That’s why it’s more critical than ever to offer the right resources and support for LGBTQ+ students’ mental and emotional health.
