Mental health problems prominent in gay, lesbian and bisexual people

Mental health problems are more common in gay, lesbian and bisexual people than heterosexual people, say researchers.

The study of 7,403 adults found that 4.1% of gay people had a depressive episode during the previous week compared to 2.1% of heterosexuals.

Another 8.6% of gay people reported self-harming compared with 4.6% of heterosexuals. 

The study was conducted by researchers in London and Leicester.
