Lavender Connection 

This support group is for students who are looking for a safe and confidential space to discuss issues related to being LGBTQ. The group will provide a supportive and affirming environment where students can share common experiences and increase their sense of understanding regarding their own gender identity, sexual identity, relationships with others, and sense of empowerment. Areas of focus may include the influence of cultural background and ethnic identity, fostering self-acceptance, stress management, coping skills, coming out to yourself & others, dating, spirituality, campus climate, and family relationships. All identities within the LGBTQ spectrum including those questioning are welcome! 

There are two Lavender Connection groups, one for undergraduate students, and another for graduate and professional students. 

To learn more or join the Lavender Connection group, visit Group Services on the SHCS website.
