LGBTQIA+ mental health in Chile and the UK: Depathologisation, affirmation and intersectionality in the experience of mental health professionals – Tomas Ojeda Guemes

What are the main challenges that mental health professionals face when working with LGBTQIA+ people? What does it mean for us to work from a depathologising and affirmative approach? What socio-political, cultural, economic and institutional contexts must be considered when thinking about this work? How do we build solidarity networks to resist current attacks on affirmative care, and what can we learn from the struggles and experiences of colleagues situated in different locations?

In this post, we share a report documenting the main lessons learned through the exchanges and the stories the participants told about their practice in Chile and the UK.

Event: CTSG and School of Sport and Health Sciences (SHSS) 19/07/23 10:30-12pm Is Hope Just Around the Corner? Using Psychedelic Medicines to Treat LGBTQIA+ Trauma – SSHS Visiting Research Fellow (Associate Prof) Markus P Bidell

It is now well accepted that LGBTQIA+ individuals are at considerable risk of experiencing many forms of trauma that can profoundly impact physical and mental health. This lecture outlines an LGBTQIA+ minority stress model and how discrimination and prejudice can leave LGBTQIA+ individuals particularly vulnerable to the impact of trauma. Psychedelic medicines are perhaps the most dynamic and hopeful treatments to emerge within the last decade regarding their ability to effectively treat trauma and the resulting complications. Dr. Bidell will connect his personal and professional knowledge when exploring the hope and promise of psychedelic treatments for the queer community.

CTSG Visiting Research Fellow for June 2023 – Annukka Lahti

Annukka Lahti is an Academy of Finland postdoctoral fellow at the University of Eastern Finland, Finland. The interrelations of intimacy, power, sexuality, gender and affect are at the heart of her research inquiry. She has studied them from queer theoretical and affect theoretical, and recently posthuman perspectives. She has published studies on affective inequalities and intimacies, queer and heterosexual relationship contexts, singlehood and LGBTIQ+ breakups. In her PhD research, she developed a queer psychosocial approach to the study of bisexuality in relationships. Thereafter, she worked as the principal investigator on a project studying sexual harassment in Finnish competitive sports. In 2020, she began her postdoctoral project on Finnish LGBTIQ+ separations, funded by the Finnish Kone Foundation. Currently, she is exploring LGBTIQ+ separations in two different cultural locations in the Academy of Finland-funded project Where the rainbow ends: the becoming of LGBTIQ+ separations (project 349408).
