What would you do if we told you there were only two colors in the entire world?
The majority of you would probably look very confused and point out the many beautiful colors all around us. It doesn’t make any sense to think there are just two!
Unfortunately, the same response isn’t as prevalent when it comes to gender and sexuality. LGBTQI rights have come a long way, but there are still too many people experiencing pain because of the injustices towards this community. If you’re feeling trapped, distressed, alienated or alone, know that Counselors at Thriveworks Willow Grove are here for you, so schedule an appointment with us today:
What Topics Do LGBTQI Counselors Address?
If you identify as part of the LGBTQI community, there’s a high chance that you have felt like you can’t be yourself. The LGBTQI community has a much higher rate of depression, anxiety, and drug use than the rest of the population. LGBTQI youth are also significantly more likely to be homeless than their counterparts. In a startling survey, researchers found that 43% of LGBTQI youth have considered suicide.
So, are you doomed to a lifetime of hardships?
Not at all! Thriveworks Willow Grove is here to help you heal and grow, so you can feel comfortable with yourself. There may be emotional and psychological wounds that you need to work through, but we will help you heal them. The counselors at Thriveworks Willow Grove are here for you.
