I’m a proud member of the board of directors of Queer LifeSpace (QLS), and I’d like to invite you to join me in showing your pride this summer by supporting mental health care for the most underserved members of our LGBTQ+ community here in the San Francisco Bay Area. QLS provides financially accessible support services for mental health and substance use issues, to every segment of our Queer community. QLS offers open-ended therapy tailored to each client’s mental health needs regardless of financial constraints. We train mental health professionals identifying as Queer (or Queer allies) to provide compassionate support to members of our own community. QLS tailors its services to all members of the gender and sexual orientation spectrum, and our support groups are safe spaces in which specific communities come together to discuss shared experiences, including Queer people of color, intersex individuals, Queer women navigating an intersection of identities, and those experiencing disability. QLS has developed a blueprint for the effective treatment of mental health and substance use challenges faced by underserved members our Queer community. We advocate for Queer proficiency among other mental health care providers, promoting education and awareness about the specific clinical needs of our community. QLS seeks to break the combined stigma of mental health support, financial need, and Queer identity in today’s society. Your donation allows our clinicians to provide therapy to those who would otherwise be unable to access these essential services. Thank you so much for giving back to our community!
