Things not to say series – LGBTQI+ issues
Mental Health at Work have created a YouTube playlist featuring six BBC videos which focus on LGBTQI+ people, including tips on what not to ask gay or trans people.
Learning about mental health issues can be daunting. You might find that you have a lot of questions. While it might be tempting to ask people who have disclosed they experience poor mental health for answers, that can becoming tiring or annoying to those faced with answering them.
However, if you’re in need of a break, or interested in sharing some light-hearted yet educational videos, the “Things not to say” series from BBC Three might be ideal. Each video features people discussing their own experiences of everyday prejudices, but in a funny, accessible way.
Mental Health at Work have created a YouTube playlist featuring six videos which focus on people with lived mental health experience:
Each video is less than seven minutes long, so can be perfect for helping you recharge while continuing to learn.
While the videos are informative and sensitive, they do discuss topics and use language which you might not consider appropriate for the workplace. Before sending these to your colleagues, please ensure they are aware of the content, and make sure you are following any communications guidance provided by your organisation.
