Welcome to New Dawn Mental Health Services, where we recognize and celebrate the unique experiences and mental health needs of the LGBTQ+ community.

Understanding LGBTQ+ Mental Health

LGBTQ+ individuals often experience higher rates of mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and suicidality compared to their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts. These disparities can stem from various factors, including societal prejudice, lack of acceptance, minority stress, and barriers to healthcare. We acknowledge these challenges and are dedicated to providing LGBTQ+-affirming mental health care that respects and validates your identity.
