Abstract
LGBTQ+ college students are more susceptible to mental health issues such as depression and thoughts of suicide (Effrig, 2011). Unfortunately, Carroll College students are not immune to this. Currently Carroll has resources in place to help students with mental health issues, but they do not have resources that are specific to students in the LGBTQ+ community. While Carroll does offer counseling support, they could expand and update those resources to better meet the needs of LGBTQ+ students. A group of students in PH 333 Public Health Theories and Practice completed an assessment of resources specifically focused on ways to improve the resources available to LGBTQ+ students on Carroll’s campus. Students also created fliers to share with the community the current resources that Carroll and the Helena community has to offer LGBTQ+ students.
