Other Upcoming Events

Mental Health America is hosting a webinar, “Engaging Youth in Safe Online Spaces to Address Mental Health Concerns” today, March 23, at 5 p.m. For LGBTQ+ youth struggling with their mental health or experiencing serious mental illness, asking for, finding, and receiving support can be challenging for various reasons. Fear, shame, non-affirming environments, and safety are all reasons LGBTQ+ youth may not seek help and eventually end up experiencing a crisis. Online spaces can be an innovative way to meet youth where they are, providing them with support, care, and resources. Participate in this event to learn about a few of these: imi, a science-backed mental health tool to help LGBTQ+ teens explore and affirm their identity; Q Chat Space, a program that provides facilitated, live-chat discussions for LGBTQ+ teens to find community and develop a positive LGBTQ+ identity; and the web of online resources now available from local LGBTQ+ community centers as a result of the pandemic. Click here for more information and to register.
