Queer Youth Siblings: Let’s Talk about our Mental Health!

As LGBTQI youth, we often experience outsized barriers to enjoying our right to health. However, spoiler alert: There has been limited research into our experiences and needs, especially around mental health across the European region. Carried out by us at IGLYO — The International LGBTQI Youth & Student Organisation, the survey below is the first step in filling this gap in current research, and an opportunity for your experience and story as an LGBTQI young person to have a real impact for you and the whole community.

What is the survey about?
With this survey we want to know more about LGBTQI youth’s needs and barriers to mental health. We explore topics such as anxiety and depression, and try to understand what helps and what doesn’t help LGBTQI young people’s mental health. We also look into the experiences of accessing support services and the factors that may affect our mental health.

Why are we doing this survey?
We will be using the results of the survey to inform our work with European and national authorities responsible for supporting LGBTQI youth and their mental health. We want to push for better services and legislation that is informed by the experience of young people.

Who can take the survey?
The survey is open to all LGBTQI young people between 14 and 30 years old based in the Council of Europe Member States (see full list here). Even if you have not faced any mental health problems, you can participate. Having your input will help us understand the bigger picture!

The survey is anonymous, and it will take approximately 20 minutes. You can also access other languages using the dropdown menu at the top of this page (more languages will be added over time). We would appreciate your response by 4 December 2023.

Warning: The survey explores topics such as anxiety and depression. The survey does not include explicit questions on self-harm and suicide. Toward the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to share your experience in your own words, which we encourage you to do in a way that is comfortable for you, either referencing what is covered in the survey or what you feel you would like to share that has not been covered by the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact: We thank you in advance for your contribution!
