A report by biUK (the UK national organisation for bisexual research and activism) in conjunction with Bi Community News and The Bisexual Index. The report provides key recommendations on the inclusion and the separate consideration of the needs of bisexual people in policy and practice, drawing on national and international research evidence and expertise to support these recommendations. The key finding is that of all the larger sexual identity groups, bisexual people have the worst mental health problems including higher rates of depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicide. This has been found in the UK and internationally, and is linked to experiences of biphobia and bisexual invisibility. The report is published by The Open University Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance and endorsed by Stonewall, the Metro Centre, the Lesbian and Gay Foundation the Psychology of Sexualities section of the British Psychological Society, Pink Therapy, the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists, and Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
