Situation

LGBT+ issues are all encompassing and impact many aspects of an individuals life. When clients join us, they are most likely struggling with mental health and standard life issues complicated by an LGBT+ related concern, e.g: self-acceptance; coming out to family, work or school; the escalation of mental health problem/s; or relatable practical issues, e.g.employment, relationships, discrimination, hate crime, domestic abuse and suicide.

Solution

Clients have autonomy over the support provided and determine their plans with a support officer based on their own needs. It is a life-long journey for anyone ‘questioning’ their gender and sexuality as a result of long-term, ingrained and historical bias towards heteronormativity in society. Our services provide confidence that their mental health, wellbeing and concerns will be treated with respect & dignity; we are here to listen, support and validate their journey to a healthy life.
