In 2018, Steven co-founded Envision:You, an initiative that works to improve behavioral health outcomes by addressing the disparity in care that LGBTQ+ individuals encounter every day. In this episode, learn about statistics surrounding substance use disorder in the LGBTQ+ community, trauma and stress to be aware of in this patient population, and what you need to know as a physician to be an LGBTQ+ competent provider.
