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.

Program Goals:

ALLIES creates a safe-space to empower LGBTQ youth while providing self-help support strategies, peer connectedness, education, and an environment promoting wellbeing.

Specialized Services:

Participants will engage in groups to provide support regarding:

  • “Coming Out”
  • Bullying
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Social Support
  • School
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Advocacy
