In this episode of GOG I have with me therapists in training, Sobia Saleem and Sadie Hernandez and we talk about the mental health risks faced by members of the Queer. We discuss the stigma that Queer youth face, especially if they are from Faith-based backgrounds, and for the need for empathy and inclusion for Queer youth.
