In addition to the economic impact, the ongoing global health crisis has also created panic and anxiety amongst the general population. While recent reports suggest a surge mental health related issues, the LGBT+ community are more likely to struggle during this period; due to the stigma and discrimination attached to their identity.  

The webinar series, led by a team of renowned experts in the industry; aims to provide a safe platform for individuals to connect and discuss issues/ grievances, from fear of loss of job, anxiety of isolation, to more concerning topics such as coping and dealing with a hostile environment at home.

Based off of these initiatives, Pride Circle, Suicide Prevention India Foundation and Salesforce will work together to create a resource centre, to benefit future mental health wellness initiatives, specific to the needs of the LGBT+ community.
