Peer support group for children and teens living as LGBT and Allies – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, questioning and allies. Many LGBTQIA individuals experience negative mental health issues due to the prejudice and other biases they face. Research suggests that queer people are at higher risk for depression, anxiety, and addiction or substance abuse. Without mental health we cannot be healthy. It is our hope that LGBTQIA individuals and allies find their Tribe and a safe outlet for them to discuss these challenges and find a sense of community online.
