The impact of discrimination/ harassment and or bullying in the workplace on people LGBTQA community takes a terrible toll on their victims and on the loved ones that live with and support them.
An extensive body of research shows that exposure to discrimination, bullying and or harassment increases the risks of poor mental and physical health for the entire community.
The mental health consequences of discrimination, harassment include depression, anxiety, suicidality, PTSD, substance use, and psychological distress.
The physical health consequences of discrimination include bodily injury, elevated stress hormone levels, cardiovascular disease, and poor self-reported health.
The types of discrimination associated with individuals in the workplace includes interpersonal discrimination, such as bullying, harassment, or assault, and structural discrimination, such as laws, policies, or practices that deny services, opportunities, or protections to various employees.
Discrimination is linked to health harms even for those who are not directly exposed to it because the presence of discrimination, stigma, and prejudice creates a hostile social climate that taxes individuals’ coping resources and contributes to minority stress. Manifestations of this stress, including internalized stigma, low self-esteem, expectations of rejection, and fear of discrimination, help explain the health disparities seen various populations. Discrimination can occur in any area of daily life, including public spaces, workplaces, schools, hospitals, and doctors’ offices, and at home.
