Repressive environment can nurture depression in LGBT persons -Harding
An environment which represses the ability of LGBT people to live their lives the way they wish can breed anger which, if not addressed, may give way to depression. If this progresses, such persons can develop homicidal and/or suicidal thoughts, says Dr. Faith Harding.
Harding, a psychologist and advocate for the rights of women and children, explained to a gathering at the Dutch Bottle Café on Tuesday night that around 95% of the persons she has worked with in her practice here and abroad have demonstrated these tendencies.
