Why Center for Mental Health Pune.
CMH offers affordable and accessible queer affirmative mental health services
Individuals who identify as LGBTQIAA+ face constant discrimination, oppression and marginalisation in our society. This often causes harm to the sense of self and safety of a queer individual by rejection and ‘othering’ experiences. Counselling/psychotherapy for queer individuals can provide support for sexuality, gender identity, and mental health disturbances contributed by a traditional and normative society and systems.
Center for Mental Health is an organisation that brings competent, inclusive, ethical, and accessible mental health services to the community. However, we recognise that there is a huge gap in mental health struggles of the queer community and their help seeking behaviour. Thus, to mend this gap, CMH psychologists have attained training in queer affirmative counselling practices. This enables them to understand and address the stressors that are unique to queer lives and have an impact on their mental health.
CMH eagerly reaches out to you through the platform of the MIST LGBTQ Foundation.
CMH brings to you QUEER AFFIRMATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY services that
are AFFORDABLE and ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL.
