What is it about?

Due to research methodology biased toward heteronormative expectations. Sexual minorities are excluded from the numbers. Instead, one rule fits all applies which leaves little for the sexual minority group. The data show that manualised cognitive therapy psychological intervention was more effective than TAU aftercare. However, these differences are not statistically significant.

Why is it important?

That it is not just straight people who attended accident and emergency departments. More needs to be done to include sexual minorities to the numbers.


Building on the work by Hawton et al, (1998) this work includes sexual minorities in its scope of work which Hawton et al, (1998) failed to do.
