Welcome to MPIPP

The mission of the Michigan Project for Informed Public Policy is to use science-based research to educate state and local public policy makers, health care professionals, and the general public about the mental health impact of discrimination on those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), their families, and allies.

The research cited by MPIPP has been peer-reviewed and considered valid by those in the larger mental health community. The polls we cite use generally accepted polling techniques. MPIPP makes this research available for use by policy makers at the state and local level, the general public, and to various organizations.

MPIPP’s website (www.mpipp.org) is a clearinghouse for research-based information on issues affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
