Pride Posse is a therapeutic support group for LGBTQ+ youth in Middle Tennessee. This is a safe space to talk about gender identity, sexual orientation, and anything else you’re going through. This group includes 5-10 participants and a therapist. Each week we check-in and share what’s going on with us. Some people like to share a lot, and some people like to listen a lot. We also do activities that help us to connect, support each other, and learn about mental health. At this time the group is open to young people ages 14 to 18.
Goals: To learn about yourself, to give support to others, and to receive support from others.
Intake Meeting with the Therapist and a Parent/Guardian. Before you start coming to Pride Posse, we will schedule an initial intake meeting with the therapist, youth, and a parent or guardian. During this time, the therapist will also review important information about limits to confidentiality, and Oasis counseling procedures. If you have any questions or concerns about this intake meeting please contact us.
