Your Tax Dollars at Work… Funding a Schizophrenic LGBT Study in Toronto
You just can’t make this stuff up…
You tax dollars are paying for a schizophrenic LGBT study in Toronto.
The Free Beacon reported:
American taxpayers are paying over $52,000 to study 16 LGBT individuals who have schizophrenia in Toronto, Canada.
The research project, “Defining Community for LGBT People with Schizophrenia,” will follow the lives of a handful of lesbian, gay, and transgender individuals for one year to study the societal “barriers” of this group.
“Sexual and gender minority individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) are amongst the most marginalized individuals in North American society,” the grant, which was awarded last August, said. “They face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination that compound the effects of having a major mental illness, hampering recovery and frustrating efforts to meaningfully participate in our communities.”
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, in Toronto, will conduct the study, which will cost $52,773 in its first year. The project lists an end date of July 2015.
