Embracing diversity in mental health support
At Phare, we are committed to fostering a safe and inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Our dedicated LGBTQ2+ counsellors strive to provide personalized support that acknowledges and respects the unique qualities of each individual.
With counsellors who embrace a queer, non-heteronormative perspective, we prioritize your mental health journey. Our services are designed to be reflective, understanding, and devoid of assumptions. Phare's mission is to redefine mental health support, making it more respectful of individual identities and ensuring accessibility for all.

Here are a few areas where we commonly provide support to folks in the LGBTQ2s+ communities:
- Support around coming out or not feeling safe coming out
- Depression resulting from lack of acceptance and judgment
- Struggling to survive and/or thrive in a heteronormative world
- Dealing with discrimination and persecution
