Yes this is a no brainer. At work I am involved with two projects which directly correlate to this study. The first is a continuation of lobbying for the creation of an LGBTQ youth suicide prevention strategy. Given that bullying and lack of acceptance compound the stressors from mental health difficulties and/or increase negative feelings and prevent one from seeking out help and receiving proper support, the rate of suicide, attempted suicide, and suicidal ideation among LGBTQ youth is much higher than that of their non-LGBTQ peers. Having a specifically tailored policy, in conjunction with proactive strategies such as so-called "gay-straight alliances", sensitivity training, and anti-homo-/bi-/transphobic bullying policies has a drastic improvement on the reduction of suicide rates (and other proxy indicators such as suicide ideation) among not only LGBTQ youth, but all youth.
The second initiative is the launch of a pilot project targeting LGBTQ inclusivity and anti-discrimination training for staff at long-term care facilities. Often LGBTQ seniors are without traditional kinship and support networks enjoyed by their non-LGBTQ counterparts as they experienced estrangement from family due to widespread ignorance, institutional and social discrimination, and many who parented children had them taken away. When LGBTQ seniors come into long-term care facilities, staff and other residents can be quite heterosexist and homo-/bi-/transphobic. This too has a negative impact on their health and comfort. Among health care settings, long-term care facilities can be among the least tolerant.
Due to fear and past experiences, many LGBTQ persons respond much better to inclusive and culturally-catered health services and preventative strategies. People are affected by their surroundings; feeling loved, understood, included, visible, accepted, and unjudged will result in an individual receiving more appropriate medical responses as well as an enhanced sense of self and sense of backing/support.
