As an LGBTQ+ friendly center, we understand that in addition to experiencing many of
the same mental health and life issues associated with heterosexuals, LGBTQ+ individuals also
experience issues that are uniquely associated to them. Issues such as homophobia,
discrimination, social stigma, sexual orientation and gender identity are all additional stressors
that contribute to the higher risk of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse for members of
the LGBT community. We have experience treating these issues and believe that gay and
+straight people are equal; there’s nothing wrong with being LGBTQ+ and that LGBTQ+ is not a
choice. We are here for support.
