LGBTQIA+ Resources

The THS Student Wellness Center offers affirming mental health services to LGBTQIA+ identified youth, families and allies. Learning about your gender identity and sexual orientation or how to be a supportive ally, can feel overwhelming sometimes. And it can be easy to feel alone or scared when you’re having these feelings. Reaching out to people who care about you and understand what you’re going through can really help. If you’re struggling, reach out! You are not alone.

LGBTQIA+ Support Group

Are you interested in meeting with fellow LGBTQIA+ students to share your experiences, give and receive support and encouragement? This is the place for you!

These groups are NOT meant to be a substitution for licensed therapy groups or individual counseling. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, or if you’re dealing with issues that feel beyond your control, we ask that you schedule an appointment with our mental health therapists (click the "make an appointment" button!).
