Research shows that Australian lesbian, bisexual and same-sex attracted women (SSAW), when compared with heterosexual women, are at higher risk of drinking harmful amounts of alcohol, and of having depression or anxiety. However, little research has explored the interaction between alcohol and mental health among SSAW. We aim to reach a better understanding of the ways in which cultural norms and social attitudes interact and influence drinking patterns and mental health among SSAW.
