‘Out of your mind’ examines how drug and alcohol treatment services can be improved for lesbian, gay, bisexual & trans (LGBT) people. The report aims to encourage commissioners and providers of drug and alcohol treatment services to be more mindful of the support needs of LGBT people when planning and delivering services. Out Of Your Mind draws together the latest research on drug and alcohol use by LGBT people, looking at how use has changed over recent years, as new harms and treatment needs related to newer drugs like mephedrone and GHB/GBL have emerged. The report draws on interviews and discussions with LGBT people in treatment and commissioners of services, and makes recommendations for Public Health England, local Public Health teams, drug & alcohol treatment services and front line staff, and researchers. It also includes some practical toolkits to help local planning and drive service improvements.
