LGBTQ+ Digital Mental Health Program
Connect to Support
A citywide pilot program managed by Curry Senior Center to provide equitable access to mental health care for marginalized and underserved older adults and those with living disabilities within the LGBTQ+ community. Eligible Participants are connected to compassionate, culturally competent Mental Health Providers for short-term individual and/or group counseling (also referred to as therapy or psychotherapy) provided via Telehealth, a tablet for video sessions and technology training and support when needed.
Mental Health + Technology
Our program reduces barriers to care by connecting the community to Mental Health Providers and the technology support necessary to make Telehealth services attainable. During the Participant referral and screening process, we include specific questions to evaluate the level of need for each Participant including WiFi connectivity, device ownership, digital literacy, etc. Once program eligibility is confirmed, we connect Participants to our Technology Navigator if needs have been identified. Our goal is to expand the possibility for connection and support in a digital world.
