Conversion Therapy is harmful
 

I am a licensed clinical psychologist. Conversion therapy and other sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) are not clinically sound and no reputable peer reviewed study has found they are effective. They have, however,been strongly linked with low mood, trauma, suicida ideation, and self-harm.
