LGBTQ+ Students

Mental Health Resources

This page is new and under construction. Our hope is to offer a space on our website to support the unique mental health needs of the LGBTQ+ community at Gustavus.

Queer & Questioning Support Group
The Gustavus Counseling Center created the Queer & Questioning group as a safe and confidential space for students who identify as LGBTQ+ or are questioning their sexual or gender identity. In this group we examine diverse gender and sexual identities and hold room for supporting each person wherever they are at in their identity development process. Meetings will be held over Google Meet at this time. If you are interested in this group, please fill out this form to be emailed meeting links. For any other quetsions, contact ageringe@gustavus.edu.
Starting September 18th, Fridays 2:30-3:30
