Abstract

There are a number of ways in which a psychiatrist or other mental health professional can advocate for mental health issues. The author uses her own involvement in the Association of Gay and Lesbian Psychiatrists (AGLP) as a way to illustrate the advocacy role. Challenges and accomplishments with respect to that role and the organization's work are discussed.
