LGBT Support Group


LGBT Support Group

This group is not currently active. If you have an interest in this particular group, please let CAPS staff know you would like to see this group active again and we will try and accommodate your request.

The LGBT Support Group aims to provide a safe and supportive environment for LGBTIQ individuals while they focus on issues of coming out, self-acceptance, relationships, identity confusion, relationships, homophobia, and discrimination. Ths group will have psycho-educational, process, and support components. It will be an open, ongoing group that will add clients as they are identified by clinicians. The group will run during the fall and spring semesters, and during summer if needed. Potential benefits of participating in this group include:

- Having a safe space to discuss LGBT-related concerns

- Connecting with others who are supportive of you and your experiences

- Learning about and/or sharing resources available locally in the LGBT community

- Hear about others’ experiences with coming out and gather ideas for your own journey
