This comprehensive review is the first handbook on LGBT physical and mental health created by the world's oldest and largest association of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender health care professionals.

Recent years have seen a flood of high quality research related to the health of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and families. The GLMA Handbook on LGBT Health is the first comprehensive resource to gather that knowledge in one place in the service of vital information needs. Both accurate and easy to understand, the two-volume handbook addresses physical, mental, and emotional health, as well as policy decisions affecting the LGBT community from youth through old age.

Volume One is devoted to overall health of the population and preventive care, while Volume Two examines disease management. Entries discuss concerns as diverse as HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, domestic violence, depression, heart health, policy and advocacy, and research. The clear but detailed articles in this groundbreaking work will help readers cut through the noise and controversy surrounding scientific advances to make informed choices about their health and well-being.

* Includes issues of physical, emotional, and sexual health, as well as prevention of disorders

* An appendix of organizations that may serve as sources for more information or assistance

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This handbook provides an interdisciplinary overview of the issues and conditions unique to LGBTQ health care, edited by gay and lesbian physicians. The first volume covers societal issues and health promotion, exploring such topics as the politics of LGBT health, transgender medical care in the U.S., preventive care and sexual health, and separate chapters on health issues of LGBT adolescents, elders, and parents. Each chapter is signed and contains notes and references for further reading. The second volume covers health matters and global challenges, covering mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse, and sexually transmitted infections. There are also chapters dealing with cancer, tobacco use, intimate partner violence, and cardiovascular health all major health issues in the LGBTQ community not often addressed in research. The final, vital chapters cover patient care: the importance of a welcoming environment, the obstacles LGBTQ patients face when navigating the health care system, and the realities of receiving care outside of North America, including in countries where homosexuality is still illegal. This is an excellent resource for public, academic, and health sciences collections.--Barbara Bibel Copyright 2019 Booklist"
