Lesbian, gay, bisexuals face more mood, anxiety disorders

A UBC study found that gays, lesbians and bisexuals have more mood and anxiety disorders than other people, reports the Times of India.

Gays and lesbians experienced about twice the rates of anxiety and mood disorders compared to heterosexuals, said lead author Basia Pakula from UBC’s school of population and public health.

The study involved more than 220,000 Canadians between 2007 and 2012.
