Mental Health Counselling - LGBTQ

Type of Service

Counselling and Treatment

Program Description

Sherbourne is committed to providing (free) specialized mental health counselling services and groups that empower LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer/questioning, 2 spirit) people – individuals over 18 years of age, couples, families and parents – to live healthier, happier Queer-positive lives. We provide a range of services – free of charge – to those who have trouble accessing quality care due to poverty, gender identity, homophobia/biphobia/transphobia, racism/xenophobia, substance use and social isolation.

Our Mental Health counsellors have an in-depth understanding of the issues and life difficulties faced by LGBTQ people. Many of our counsellors also identify as LGBTQ and all providers are LGBTQ positive.

We can support/help you with issues such as:
- Stress and anxiety
- Sadness, grief and isolation
- Depression, motivation and anger
- Substance use and body image
- Sexuality, self-esteem and relationships
- Gender identity and Transition Related Surgeries (assessments)
- Connection and referrals to other LGBTQ relevant services and programs
