IP Out Event - "In or Out: LGBT+ people and mental health"

Event ended

IP Out Event - "In or Out: LGBT+ people and mental health"

From Free



Jul 30 2018 17:30 - 19:30


Many LGB people find themselves going back in the closet when they make the transition from university to the workplace, and this can have seriously detrimental effects on their mental health. However, being out at work can also have consequences. Lack of acceptance in the workplace can contribute to mental health issues for trans* people. Join us for a discussion of specific ways in which LGBT+ people are at risk of mental health issues, and what firms, colleagues and the individuals themselves can do to mitigate the risk.

IP Out are pleased to welcome Marco Pilia, a BACP qualified integrative psychotherapist and volunteer for London Friend, to discuss his knowledge and experience of mental health issues in LGBT+ people. Tobias Hawksley-Beesley, an associate at Bird & Bird and IP Out committee member will also talk about his experiences both in and out of the closet at work. As usual, we will have an extended Q&A and discussion time.

This event is a tie-in with Mental Health Awareness week, which was in June, but is being held later to take reduce the event pressure in that week. To honour Marco’s work with London Friend, there will be an opportunity to make a contribution to their work at the event, or you can make a donation here if you wish. London Friend is the UK’s oldest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans charity. With the help of over 100 volunteers, it supports the health and mental well-being of the LGB&T community in and around London.

The event is generously hosted by Kilburn & Strode at their new central London offices. We hope you will be able to join us on Monday 30th July from 17:30, with discussion to commence at 18:00 and drinks to follow.
