Reviews and Endorsements

Knowledge empowers. Understanding brings compassion. This expertly written book does all that, and brilliantly and carefully opens the necessary dialogue, explaining all evidence-based approaches around the mental health challenges faced by those often judged and marginalised simply for being who they are. A privilege to read, a pleasure to endorse. - Professor Tanya Byron, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, journalist, author and broadcaster.

This is a super comprehensive book covering the main mental health struggles that queers experience, and how these relate to the world around us. The book is packed with compassionate and practical activities: a much needed resource to help us through the tough times. - Meg-John Barker, author of Hell Yeah Self-Care

This book completely bowled me over. Whilst many self-help books trot out epithets and homilies and a smattering of common sense, this book brings some of the most robust evidence-based psychological insights and applies them to LGBTQ lives and how to maintain our mental health. There are some great practical exercises and activities. If you can't afford therapy right now, then this would be a great investment. If you are in treatment, this book can help you maximise your progress. - Dominic Davies, Founder of Pink Therapy.

This is a phenomenal and highly needed book. It's going to be a guiding light for so many young LGBTQ+ individuals. What an honour and privilege to read. - Kyle McGovern, Trainee Health Psychologist.

The Queer Mental Health Workbook engages the reader with clear explanations of tried and true strategies to navigate mental health challenges, while contextualizing these strategies to the Queer experience. It is an essential resource for any Queer person struggling with these challenges. - Darren Courtney, psychiatrist, researcher, and lead author of the CARIBOU CBT Group Manual for Youth.

I found so much value in this book! It is a fantastic resource for individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. Dr. Dunlop's book is expertly written with evidence-based treatments and written in a manner that is understandable and relatable. He offers wonderful activities and exercises. I highly recommend this book and I will certainly recommend it to my patients. It truly is a gift to the LGBTQ+ community and their allies! - Frank J. Sileo, PhD, licensed psychologist, award-winning author, and national speaker.

This workbook presents an exceptionally accessible and practicable book, bringing together techniques and exercises in such a way that present a compassionately and insightfully written aid. As a Queer man, much of the writing resonates. As a clinician, I can see the obvious utility that this book would have, and can see how the evidence based exercises and worksheets would help people in the queer community and beyond. - Dr Duncan Shrewsbury, Senior Lecturer in General Practice, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and GP at Montpelier Surgery, Brighton.
