Discrimination Affecting the Wellbeing of LGBTQ+ People Study

Check out this research study by local student Katie Cole of Harrison High School! Below is a short message about her research study:

"Hi, my name is Katie Cole and I'm doing research on how discrimination affects the wellbeing of LGBTQ+ people. The topic that I'm studying is the mental health of LGBTQ+ people; specifically, I'm interested in how incidents of discrimination and micro-aggressions based on sexuality and/or gender identity affect self-reported well-being of LGBTQ+ people. This is a subject I am passionate about and I'm hoping that you will help me find answers. I am planning to use a multiple regression model to analyze the results. I am hoping that my model will be able to predict how individuals are affected by different levels of discrimination. These results could be helpful in quantifying the effect of offensive language and other microaggressions on LGBTQ+ people and could lead to the construction of new policies that would protect them. Please let help me achieve my goals for the good of the whole LGBTQ community by taking my survey; it should only take 5 minutes of your time. Thank you!"
