LGBTQ+ Mental Health Resources

You are loved, safe, and celebrated in Massachusetts exactly as you are – and you are not alone.

Anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric and actions are surging across the nation, which takes a toll on the mental health of LGBTQ+ kids, adults, and families no matter what state they’re in. Queer people are more likely to experience bullying, harassment, and violence, and ongoing discrimination and prejudice prevents them from accessing support systems and services. Find mental health resources for members of the LGBTQ+ community and their families below.
