New Online Training for Mental Health Providers Benefits LGBTQ Community

Mental health providers can learn to deliver evidence-based LGBTQ-affirmative cognitive therapy through low-cost online training, which would help deliver more evidence-based mental health care to LGBTQ people and support its implementation across practice settings, according to a new study by Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) researchers.

The study, published July 28 in the American Psychological Association's Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, was led by John Pachankis, the Susan Dwight Bliss Professor of Public Health in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and director of Yale's LGBTQ Mental Health Initiative.
