Overview

In Sexual Orientation and Mental Health: Examining Identity and Development in Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual People, expert contributors explore the impressive body of rigorous empirical research on mental health in lesbian, gay, and bisexual people that has emerged over the past decade. This volume presents some of the most important work in this field from both established and emerging investigators. The contributors examine the prevalence and potential determinants of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in adolescents and adults, giving consideration to the roles of prejudice and harassment as well as of positive family and social supports. The chapters address a wide range of topics, including sexual behavior and identity, the influence of religion on mental health, work satisfaction, the well-being of children of same-sex couples, and the links between psychosocial processes and physical health. Several chapters also focus on the experiences of members of ethnic minority groups. Contributors discuss methodological challenges in conducting research with lesbian, gay, and bisexual people and suggest topics for future research. In addition to contributing to scientific knowledge in numerous areas, findings reported in this volume can inform the development of prevention and treatment interventions, service delivery systems, and health policies that are sensitive to the needs of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people.
