Being a teenager is difficult enough.
When your teenager is also questioning their gender or sexuality, that stress is compounded. LGBTQIA+ youth are at a much higher risk of depression, thoughts of suicide, and substance abuse. They experience rejection, discrimination, and loneliness at much higher rates than their peers. 39% of LGBTQIA+ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past twelve months, with more than half of transgender and non-binary youth having seriously considered suicide.
Studies have shown that social support is an extremely significant factor in the wellbeing of LGBTQ youth. They are far more likely to be open about their experiences with peers rather than adults. In group therapy, people can learn that others are experiencing some of the same struggles as them, and understand their experience.

LGBTQIA+Teen Group will help your teen:
Anslie Ruckman Group Therapy Leader
Creating this resource at Replenish Her was something I have felt passionate about since starting with Replenish Her in 2020.
I have been running this particular group for the last year, and find that this space is so unique and empowering for adolescents to explore their sexuality and gender in a safe and affirming environment.
Participants who have participated in this group have spoken to the way in which this group not only helps support the exploration of identity, but also creates a space to explore other areas like depression, anxiety, and navigating stressors.
I love that this groups helps teens know themselves better, but also equips group members with useful skills and tools to better navigate the stressors that emerge when you are both a teen as well as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Next Group series starts October 16th
