High schools, colleges and universities across the United States have thousands of students enrolling in a range of programs. These students vary in the following ways: different cultural affiliations, religions, racial identity, and sexual orientation. This paper will specifically look at students who identify as LGBTQ and the issues they face on college campuses. The author will describe different forms of mindfulness-based therapies, and the effectiveness in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) student populations. Finally, the discussion will include the outcomes of using these therapeutic techniques and interventions as well as the next steps to consider for clinical mental health professionals and school counselors.
