Who We Are
Rainbow Heights Club is committed to creating a safe place for community members to socialize, access peer support and take the next step forward on their recovery journey, together.
Participation in Rainbow Heights Club is free and confidential, and there are no attendance requirements. You decide the level of participation that is right for you.
Rainbow Heights Club is not a therapy or psychiatry clinic. Rainbow Heights Club offers extra support that is separate from your psychiatrist or therapist. The Club is a place you can share your experiences with staff and other community members who understand where you're coming from, and who have faced similar challenges.
Why We're Here
LGBTQ people who also experience mental illness face many difficult challenges. In hospitals, clinics and day treatment programs, they may feel uncomfortable talking about their identities and experiences as LGBTQ people.
You may have hidden your sexual identity from friends, your doctor, nurse or therapist. You may have felt alone, scared or misunderstood. Similarly, in LGBT community centers and other environments, you may have been reluctant to talk about the parts of your life that have been affected by your mental illness and recovery, because you were afraid that other people in the community would not understand or accept you.
Rainbow Heights Club provides a supportive and encouraging environment where you can be fully yourself and begin to heal.
