137 Views

While any advanced news of events in Lebanon are yet to reach us, we have been made aware of a small number of significant actions.
In Beirut, the Lebanese Psychological Association will follow the example of other international groups by sharing a message of solidarity against the discrimination of LGBTI individuals within psychiatry and mental health. The message will follow-on from recent World Psychological Association statements condemning conversion therapies and other discriminatory practices, and is currently the only action of its kind in the Middle East region.
The message will be shared among mental health professionals and the LPA network, and will hopefully help foster a national dialogue surrounding issues of sexual and gender identity.
