LGBTQ+ Youth of Color Group Therapy

The Center and the Strengthening Colors of PRIDE project are providing eight more weeks of free group therapy for young, LGBTQ+ persons of color! Therapist Nelson Hernández, LMFT-Associate, will run a free, eight-week therapy group for LGBTQ+ youth of color (18-26+). This group will meet virtually, once a week for eight weeks beginning on Wednesday May 12. Sessions will be held on Wednesdays at 7pm. Visit pridecentersa.org/group-therapy for more information and eligibility requirements.

 

About this group:

 

  • The LGBTQ+ youth of color group is designed to provide support, guidance, and ways of managing your mental and emotional well-being. Potential topics include family and social supports, safety and discrimination, coming out and/or transitioning, access to services and local resources, and resilience and perseverance.

 

Why should I apply? 

 

This is an opportunity to participate in free group therapy with an experienced licensed marriage and family therapist, Nelson Hernandez LMFT-Associate. These therapy sessions allow yourself and others to create personal goals, learn more about your mental health, and identify your strengths and resilience. The Strengthening Colors of PRIDE team will also give brief surveys to participants throughout the sessions. Those who chose to complete the 3 surveys will receive a small monetary incentive after completing each one. In response to the needs of our community, we hope to fund more free and low-cost therapy in the near future.
