New LGBTQ+ Support Group

Rainbow colored striped background with the words Love is Love written in white font.LGBTQ+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, plus those who may identify or feel as though they may be part of this community.  The purpose of this group is to offer a safe and welcoming environment to gain knowledge and to talk with other people who are LGBTQ+ or who are questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity.  The group will discuss an array of topics such as coming out, feeling comfortable with one’s gender identity or sexual orientation, family acceptance concerns, and religion.  Other issues discussed will include personal growth, relationships, depression, anxiety, stress management, asserting personal boundaries, mindfulness, and self-care.  This psychoeducational group is for all LGBTQ+ students, no matter what stage they are at in life.  Also, feel free to come to lend support to others!

The group will meet Thursdays from 12:15pm to 1:00 p.m. in the Donaghey Student Center, Room 201T.
