This handout is supplementary to a two-part webinar series developed for county behavioral health staff, mental health providers, social workers, and clinicians to help understand how SOGIE-inclusivity can be integrated into behavioral health treatment provision in order to improve behavioral health outcomes. The first webinar in the series provided an overview of gender and sexual diversity, and the interactions between SOGIE, behavioral health outcomes, and the ability to access services. The second webinar in the series provided training on implementing SOGIE-inclusive strategies, practices, and protocols for ensuring that LGBTQIA+ clients experience welcoming and responsive care, thereby increasing the likelihood of continued engagement with needed behavioral health services.
The handout complements the two webinars.
