By recognizing and affirming the importance of Pride Month and using this time to reflect on how to better support LGBTQI+ people living with SUDs and other mental health disorders, everyone can contribute to increasing LGBTQI+ behavioral health equity and serving as effective allies to LGBTQI+ people in recovery. Reach out to your regional SAMHSA-funded Addiction Technology Transfer Center, the SAMHSA-funded Peer Recovery Center of Excellence, and the SAMHSA-funded Center of Excellence on LGBTQI+ Behavioral Health Equity for further support in implementing LGBTQI+ affirming practices, policies, and procedures in your treatment or service setting.
