The Youth Wellness Centre works with youth ages 17-25 who are struggling with mental health and substance use concerns. We have staff who are from the LGBTQ2S+ community on our team and all our staff provide a safe(er) space for LGBTQ2S+ youth. Our psychiatrists have expertise in working with trans youth in particular, and we provide trans peer support. Some of our other programming is described in separate records (for example: SAGE--peer support group for LGBTQ2S+ youth, 'Scope--peer support group for LGBTQ2S+ youth, and an LGBTQ2S+ Concurrent Disorders Clinician).
PFLAG Renfrew County offers support and information for LGBTQ+ individuals and their families. All are welcome at our monthly coffee/support meeting - a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space. These meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month starting at 6:30 p.m. at 464 Isabella St., Rm. 107, Pembroke. We also offer a telephone support/information line, as well as free presentations throughout Renfrew County on LGBTQ+ issues and identities, and how to be an ally.
Salaam Canada is a volunteer-run national organization dedicated to creating space for people who identify as both Muslim and queer and trans.
Salaam (Toronto Chapter) holds a monthly discussion group at the 519 Church Street Community Centre.
This group has a drop-in model and primarily focuses on discussions related to coming out, sexuality, spirituality, and religion and offers social support to its attendees. Some months, social events are held instead of support group discussions at the 519.
Salaam offers one-on-one peer support to those who contact the group nationally. In-person or online peer support requests can be arranged based on volunteer availability and capacity. Peer support means having supportive conversations, sharing experiences, and learning information about resources with a Salaam volunteer. This is often the first point of contact for many people who later access Salaam’s services
