El consumo de sustancias en la comunidad LGBTQ+

The purpose of this module is to make visible the effects of stigmatization and marginalization in the LGBTQ+ community and how they are more likely to present depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders, compared to the heterosexual population. Health service providers will learn in this module about LGBTQ+ population, and be able to understand the social determinants that affect them and identify their needs. Also, they will learn language free of stigma and how to integrate sensitivity approaches and intervention strategies that respect their diversity. These practices have been shown to be more effective for substance use treatment in LGBTQ+ communities.
