Innovative approaches address aging and mental health needs in LGBTQ communities
LGBTQ older adults have higher levels of psychological distress as compared to older adults in general.

This article discusses this lack of access to services, and highlights an innovative way mental health services are being delivered in LGBTQ communities.
