Student Researchers: Ngoc Phan

This study explored the relationship between the LGBTQ+ community’s personal characteristics to mental health stress based on the Meyer’s (2003) model of Minority Stress. College students, faculty, and staff were surveyed to examine if each of the construct and overall theoretical framework of the Meyer’s model was supported with structural equation modeling. Although the results did not support every data proxy representing a construct, findings did support the overall theoretical model.
