Elevate – Mental Health Counseling

Some days are good, some are great, and some are not so great. There are specific challenges in the LGBTQ community and we are especially prepared to help you move through them. Our Elevate Mental Health Counseling focuses on trauma sessions for LGBTQ youth of color and youth who are struggling with substance use or abuse

LGBTQ Center OC recognizes the importance of Restorative Justice in creating affirming spaces for LGBTQ students. It is crucial to consider the intersectional experiences of LGBTQ students who are students of color and students with disabilities. LGBTQ students additionally face the impacts of discriminatory policies and explicit and implicit bias in school discipline practices, such as suspensions and expulsions.

Effectively meeting the needs of LGBTQ youth requires creating supportive learning environments for all students, which can be achieved through various models, such as restorative justice, peer counseling, and mediation. These solutions bring students and educators together to collaboratively and proactively address the root cause of conflict, thereby allowing schools to address and correct student behavior without denying students valuable instructional time.
