CarePlus presents ALLIES (Acceptance, Life, Leadership, Identity, Education and Support), a LGBTQ wellness and support group for youth age 14 through 17.
Research indicates that LGBTQ youth who have peer-to-peer connectedness are more likely to have overall improved mental health status and sense of well-being than LGBTQ youth who lack connectedness and social support. The ALLIES wellness and support group provides that and more.
ALLIES creates a safe-space to empower LGBTQ youth while providing self-help support strategies, peer connectedness, education, and an environment promoting wellbeing.
Participants will engage in groups to provide support regarding:
- “Coming Out”
- Social Support
- Interpersonal Relationships
