ABOUT THE MN LGBTQ+ THERAPISTS' NETWORK

The MN LGBTQ+ Therapists’ Network is a grassroots network of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, pansexual, gender expansive, Two-Spirit and allied/affirming mental health, wellness, medical and social service professionals.

The MN LGBTQ+ Therapists’ Network (The Network) was established in 1988 as a grass-roots group of LGBTQIAPGE2S mental health professionals who wanted a way to safely network, support and educate each other and the community about issues related to LGBTQIAPGE2S mental health and wellness.

As far as we know, we are the first such professional organization for LGBTQIAPG2S mental health providers in the country.

The MN LGBTQ+ Therapists' Network (The Network) has 150+ paid members who are working or studying in mental health, social service, wellness, healing practices and related fields. We offer a public online resource directory of our members and their services. We also have an active Facebook site which has over 800 members. The majority of our members are located in the five county Twin Cities metro area. Our other members hail from Greater MN, Wisconsin and Eastern North Dakota. The Network is coordinated by a volunteer steering committee of its members.

The goals of The Network are, using an intersectional lens:

(1) provide our members opportunities for professional and social support

(2) exchange and offer resources and referrals

(3) provide LGBTQIAPG2S mental health continuing education

(4) affirm our LGBTQIAPG2S communities.

As a diverse community of LGBTQ+ and allied helping professionals, we are committed to honoring the complex intersections of gender and sexuality with race, age, ability, size, spirituality, education, country of origin, immigration status, family composition, and class.

We deem it critical to provide education and mental health services that move beyond just the "acknowledgement of differences and cultural competence".

We aim to advance a context of helper cultural humility that recognizes privilege and oppression trauma, the essential nature of collective health and wellness, and actively works towards just, respectful, accessible and expansive mental health and wellness opportunities and services for all humans
