In Partnership with
LIFT, therapist-led bi-monthly group therapy for parents of LGBTQ kids in crisis, is here!
The average wait time to access behavioral health services is about six weeks. When looking for an LGBTQ specialist in certain areas, wait times can stretch into months. LIFT provides a safe space for parents to express their emotions, increase their understanding of mental health issues related to their kids, and helps them and their children develop coping skills and self-care techniques while they wait for access to individual behavioral health services.
Each month will cover a specific topic relevant to parenting an LGBTQ child.
Our tentative list of topics include:
NOVEMBER: Eating Disorders
DECEMBER: Substance Abuse
FEBRUARY: Chronic or Acute Suicidal Ideation & Mental Health Hospitalizations
MARCH: Ongoing Depression and Anxiety
APRIL: Non-Affirming Family
MAY: Boundary Problems
JULY: Sexual Activity, Safety, or Promiscuity
AUGUST: Managing Conflict at Home
SEPTEMBER: Neurodiversity Impacting Mental Health
OCTOBER: Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional)
75 minute sessions
Limited to 18 attendees
Led by licensed therapists
