RESOURCES

LET’S NAVIGATE THIS TOGETHER!

Hello from Team Brave Trails!

We made this list because we know how tough it was to find LGBTQ+ resources when we were young. Where can I find books, movies, clothing made for my body, and support as a young LGBTQ+ person. Yup, we all asked the same questions. You are not alone and you are valid. We hope this helps you navigate a little easier. You got this!

We do as much research as we can before adding a resource to our list, but we do not endorse any of the following providers. Please be sure to research these providers on your own before accessing their services.

Mental Health Support for Youth

We love mental health support! There are some incredible organizations full of very LGBTQ+ affirming and supportive folks who are trained to help you get through those tough times. They are waiting to meet you when you are ready.

Tips for getting in to therapy:

– Speak up about your needs and don’t be afraid to ask if your therapist is LGBTQ+ knowlegeable and affirmeing. Ask what training they have had. Be sure to ask what your therapists confideniality agreement is with you (aka what they may/may not tell your parent) if you are under 18. Laws may diffeer from state to state.

– If you have health insurance, check with your insurance providor to see if therapy is covered or offered at a reduced cost to private therapy, which can be costly for some people.

– Check with your school guidance counselor. They may offer access to a therapist at your school or local resources.

– Check with your local LGBTQ center or youth center. Some centers offer affordable mental health support.
