LGBTQ+ Mental Health

Access to supportive mental health care is important. Mary’s Center has behavioral health providers who can assist children, adolescents, and adults who identify as part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) and nonbinary community. Several members of our behavioral health team are trained to provide culturally competent care for the LGBTQ+ community and are committed to creating a supportive, healing space.  

Specific behavioral health providers are also available to assist persons identifying as transgender or gender non-conforming with gender affirming mental health care. If you identify as transgender or gender non-conforming and are seeking care, Mary’s Center can serve as your “home base” during the transition process. Our behavioral health team can: 

  • Talk with you about your gender treatment goals to come up with plan that is right for you  
  • Provide mental health related referral letters when needed 
  • Connect you to our medical providers for help with hormone therapy and surgical letters 

Our greatest hope is you feel welcome, safe, and truly cared at Mary’s Center. Please reach out to us if you’re in need of support.
