During times of infectious disease outbreaks—including the COVID-19 pandemic and monkeypox outbreak—you may notice an increased level of stress within yourself or others. This is a normal response to uncertainty and a sense of loss of control. The increased stress level is particularly noticeable for those who know someone who is ill. It is important to recognize the signs of increased stress and learn healthy ways to manage it.
Drug And Alcohol Self-Assessment
It can be difficult to determine when recreational use of drugs and alcohol has crossed the line into addiction. Do you think you or someone close to you might have a problem that requires professional help? We’ve compiled some questions you can ask yourself or your loved one if you feel their use may be out of control. If some of these topics and questions feel like they hit home, it may be time to seek help. Pride Institute is here to help you start your recovery journey.
We’ve put together some materials, statistics, and other facts about common mental health and substance use topics that impact the LGBTQ+ community. Covering topics ranging from sexual health to commonly misused drugs, this information is meant to help community leaders, educators, advocates, allies, and individuals who are worried about tithe own substance use get more informed about the issues facing the community.
Join the network of past Pride Institute clients who’ve banded together to provide support, inspiration, and partnership to each other as they continue to live sober lives after treatment. Get involved with our alumnx speaker events, networking groups, and more.
