Today Lebanon witnessed an important milestone for our healthcare system and for equality among all citizens.

The Lebanese Psychiatric Society just released a statement on Thursday, July 11 2013, declaring the following:

“Homosexuality is not a mental disorder and does not need to be treated.”

“Homosexuality in itself does not cause any defect in judgment, stability, reliability or social and professional abilities.”

“The assumption that homosexuality is a result of disturbances in the family dynamic or unbalanced psychological development is based on wrong information.”

The Lebanese Psychiatric Society announced its strong opposition to Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE).

This comes two months after we released our position statement against Sexual Orientation Change Efforts on May 17 2013.

We would like to thank the Lebanese Psychiatric Society for this essential position statement to clarify the facts, dispel the myths and provide guidance to mental health professionals practicing in Lebanon.

Below is a glimpse of Lebanese media coverage of this statement:
