Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) migrants have a unique set of experiences that affect mental health. Many are forced to flee their home countries owing to persecution, and both pre- and post-migration factors can affect their well-being. Mental health providers would benefit from learning about the specific needs of this population. In this chapter, we will discuss LGBT migrant experiences with regard to pre- and post-migration factors affecting mental health. We will address relevant terminology, factors that affect mental health, and helpful information about providing culturally sensitive care. We will use case examples to illustrate the information provided.
