Who Cares If It Is a Hate Crime? Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Hate Crimes—Mental Health Implications and Interventions

By Laura C. Hein and Kathleen M. Scharer, 2012

PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper was to discuss lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender-targeted hate crimes and their mental health consequences for the victim and community. CONCLUSIONS: Hate crimes are typically more violent than nonhate-motivated crimes and have more deleterious mental health consequences. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Thorough assessment coupled with an under- standing of the social milieu and the meaning of the experience to the survivor can help the psychiatric nurse partner with the client to select the most appropriate treatment.
