Notes

"Mental Health Greensboro advances mental wellness in our community through leadership, education, direct services and collaborative partnerships. We assist individuals to manage their symptoms, stay in recovery, rebuild relationships, and pursue life goals such as higher education and employment opportunities. We believe that recovery is successful when individuals take an active role in learning about their diagnoses and strategies for managing their symptoms. We are Greensboro’s only dedicated peer support recovery organization combining peer education, peer coaching, support group facilitation and peer support specialist training."

Specific Programs:
"Renewal Support Group is a peer-led support group providing a judgement-free setting for the LGBTQ community to come together and support each other with mental health recovery." (https://www.facebook.com/groups/213433573347534/)

"H.E.R. which stands for Hope Empowered Recovery, is a group that lifts up black women and creates an environment of understanding and support for those struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, emotional wellness, and other mental health concerns.
Our H.E.R. support group aims to help black women gain an understanding of issues facing the black community and the world around. Peers will get support and guidance from other black women, express and manage emotions and promote healing within the support group community.
This support group meets online via ZOOM" (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1098522830544595/)

Notes

"Queer Appalachia is an artist collective. Anyone is welcome at our table regardless of addiction status, mental health, socioeconomic status, identity, race or how "out" you are. When we use hashtags like #nooneisdisposable, it's not marketing or branding. We invite anyone to work along side us. For far too long, depictions of these regions have been white-washed and have made invisible the communities of color that live and struggle alongside us. We acknowledge the necessity for our work to not emulate these patterns and seek that both the project and its contributors accurately and appropriately reflect our diverse community."
Projects and Efforts Include: Harm Reduction; Transformative Justice; 'Electric Dirt' (magazine celebrating Queer voices and identities from Appalachia and the South); Community SOS & Rapid Response Funding; monthly Spotify playlist. Continuously evolving, so check website for new projects and efforts.

Notes

"Stigma-free, affirming, affordable therapy for LGBTQIA+ Individuals

Do you live outside of the heteronormative-cisgender box?

Have you been to other supposed “LGBTQ-friendly” counselors who had no idea what you were talking about?

Could you use a safe space to process your feelings and assess your goals?

Are you seeking transition and need a letter for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Or maybe you’re seeking relationship counseling from someone who understands where you’re coming from.

If you can relate to any of the above, then you’ve come to the right place.

No judgements. No biases. Just a strong support system with open ears."
