Creating a region where LGBTQ+ people thrive means supporting your health and wellness. If you are dealing with any issue that feels beyond your control, including depression, anxiety, victimization, homelessness, stress or relationships issues, we are here to listen without judgement and empower you with the coping strategies and culturally affirming mental health services and resources that provide relief. All services are free.

Offering drop-in respite, the Lambda Lounge provides a safe place to chill, access resources, or to just talk to someone. Respite is open for any person 25 years or older who identifies as part of the LGBTQ+ community. Drop-in is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A safe place to rest, clean restrooms, free WiFi, access to computers, and people who care are on hand to help you with any issues.

Community Resource Navigation: Community members are free to stop in to use the restroom, access free WiFi and computers, take a brief rest, get a drink of water. Community resource advocates who care will listen intently and strive to help you find whatever affirming resource you need, whether you are looking for mental and physical health professionals, housing, social services, legal aid, or other support programs.

Drop-in Respite: Tuesdays and Fridays 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., community members are invited to come in, relax, take a break from the stressors of their lives and deescalate mental health conditions to prevent suicide, hospitalization, or incarceration.
