LGBTQIA Support Group

LGBTQIA Support Group will be offered again this semester.  Group sessions will be held in Counseling Services (in the Health Center down the hall from Health Services) on Fridays from 3:00pm-4:30 pm.

For those who have not participated in group therapy in the past, please know that you do not need to have a specific problem in order to benefit from this group.  All you need is some free time and a desire to exchange ideas with your peers about issues that are important to you.  The goal is to provide support in a safe, comfortable environment where individual differences are embraced, critical thinking about current events and LGBTQIA issues is encouraged, and confidentiality is prioritized.  Learning assertive communication skills, setting appropriate boundaries, forming healthy relationships, coping with discrimination/marginalization, and maintaining optimal mental health are a few of the topics that have been discussed in past group sessions.  Plus, it’s all free of charge! 

Please contact Dr. Huang or Counseling Services for more information if you are interested.
