LGBTQ Support Groups

Peer support is founded on the principle that people who share an experience have something to offer, which may be more than mental health professionals can provide. Through such groups, individuals gain a sense of community and affiliation, receive resources and tools for wellness, healing, self-exploration, and have the empowering opportunity to share their own experiences and support others.

All peer support group facilitators are trained by a licensed mental health professional and place high importance on members' safety and confidentiality. Our current support groups are listed below. New support groups in various areas of need are added as new facilitators are trained. Feel free to let us know if there is a group you would like to see offered.

Transgender Services

Northwest Arkansas Equality partners with the Transgender Equality Network to help provide additional services and community events for our transgender and gender non-conforming community.
