"Lesbian, gay and bisexual people are at higher risk of mental health conditions, suicidal ideation, alcohol and substance misuse, and deliberate self-harm than heterosexual people, with rates between 1.5 and 2 times general population rates. These risks are particularly high in adolescence and early adulthood. Camden and Islington are estimated to have among the largest lesbian, gay and bisexual populations in the country, with 6,176 and 5,857 residents aged over 16 years, in 2014." page 55

"Historically, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; refugees and asylum seekers and people with disabilities have been under-represented in mental health services. Further data collection and analysis of characteristics in the future would provide a better understanding of the current local picture." pages 106, 107
