Everyone in this country should feel safe and happy to be who they are, and to love who they love, without judgment or fear. The MSCPVA celebrates the love and diversity of all its members and our supporters. We thank all Veterans for their service to our great nation.
If you are a Veteran who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or another related identity (LGBTQ+) who is facing a mental health challenge — no matter how big or small — you are not alone.
Studies have shown that LGBTQ+ Veterans are at an elevated risk for stress. This stress can increase the risk for certain mental and physical health conditions, such as substance use disorders, anxiety, and depression.–VA LGBTQ+ Veterans Resource Page
