March 31st is the annual Transgender Day of Visibility. When thinking about the intention of increasing “visibility”, speaker, writer and performer Jade Phoenix posted last year:
Jade’s thoughts broaden the concepts of visibility and awareness and giving all people additional perspectives on understanding and supporting transgender people.
Part of support can include mental health counseling concerning gender identity or expression. Here are some agencies in the Austin area that have expertise in serving people who are LGBTQIA+:
- OutYouth https://www.outyouth.org/
- Waterloo Counseling Center https://www.waterloocounseling.org/
- Transgender Wellness Program (a joint program of Kind Clinic and OutYouth that is for adults) https://www.outyouth.org/govirtual/transwellness
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) of University of Texas at Austin values and affirms providing services to the LGBTQIA+ population. The EAP can meet with staff and faculty for short term counseling and referrals to community providers. Please contact us at (512) 471-3366 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a free and confidential appointment.
