Like most health care services in India, mental health programmes today are not entirely equipped to handle the intricacies of a queer person’s emotional and social life.

There is a lot of value in the idea of “nothing about us, without us.’ When queer mental health is discussed in the larger setting of psychological health, it is discussed by people who are not us, meaning who are not queer. While it is perfectly possible for a straight doctor or a therapist to be queer-aware and queer-friendly enough to be helpful to a great many queer individuals, not having the lived experiences of a queer individual may however present obstacles similar to cross-cultural therapy for the therapist.

Let’s take this opportunity to discuss our own Mental Health as individuals and as a community.
