LGBTQ community members face higher rates of mental health issues, challenging socioeconomic and cultural conditions, multiple risk factors, and barriers to accessing care. Finding a queer-inclusive provider with baseline competency can be difficult, and locating a provider with specialized knowledge and experience in LGBTQ issues may take even more time.
PROUD + EMPOWERED
The Collective provides research-informed and evidence-based practices specifically for the queer community. Most recently, The Collective has implemented an evidenced-based queer-affirming group, Proud and Empowered, designed by the University of Southern California.
LGBTQ-AFFIRMING INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
Our team offers LGBTQ-affirming individual therapy focusing on a person’s self-identity development while healing the associated mental health effects of discrimination and minority stress. The Collective provides an opportunity for many clients to be a part of an inclusive group environment where they are free to express themselves and live as they fully desire to be.
GENDER-NEUTRAL RESTROOMS + HOUSING
We prioritize accessibility to gender-neutral restrooms and housing for maximum comfort and inclusion in our healing spaces.
The queer-affirming clinical community at The Collective aims for clients to build long-term mental health through an empowered sense of self. Team members of the queer community who have lived experience and specialization create visibility and representation around identity and peer mentorship.
