Our Support groups are ideal for teens who identify as LGBT: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Questioning.
Research has shown that LGBTQ teens tend to experience negative mental health problems due to the prejudice and other biases they face. In addition to this, studies have also shown that queer people are at higher risk for depression, anxiety, and addiction or substance abuse.
Unfortunately, being a teen is hard enough. Add the complexity of trying to accept your identity while risking rejection and isolation; it can be overwhelming.
Presently, there is little to no support for teens and it is for this very reason that The Good Center has decided to become the community leader in providing the first LGBTQ Support group, exclusively for teens.
If it is noted that your teen requires more treatment and more attention than the group can provide, Latreanna will make a clinical decision and inform the parent (for minors) or the participant for those 18 and over.
Latreanna White is not only our group facilitator but also one who identifies at Lesbian.
