LGBTQ+ Affirming Therapy Services

LGBTQ+ Affirming Therapy Services Program Application


Stand with Trans has available funding from the United Way of Washtenaw County to provide access to LGBTQ+ affirming mental health care for transgender and nonbinary youth (and families when needed) who don’t have the funds to cover the session costs or do not have health insurance. The person receiving services must live in Washtenaw County and be 13-24 years old. Fees or co-pays for services will be paid directly to the mental health provider with whom youth will be working. Fees will be provided for a predetermined number of sessions on a case-by-case basis and based on the individual needs of the youth. There are a limited number of sessions available.
