This chapter reviews the multiple levels of stigma encountered by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals with mental illness. Associated disparities in mental health care are discussed. Results from the qualitative case narrative analysis are provided to identify themes related to the facilitators and barriers in the acceptance process for LGBT individuals with mental illness. Three participant narratives are included to assist practitioners in applying these findings to clinical practice. Selected case narratives represent participants from a range of LGBT identities to illustrate facilitators and barriers in the acceptance process among individuals within this group. A clinical strategies list, discussion questions, activities, the “Acceptance and Sexual and Gender Identities Worksheet,” and explanatory diagrams are included at the close of the chapter.
