AFFIRM is a CBT based group support for caregivers to help build an action plan and coping skills to support LGBTQ+ youth.
We are currently offering AFFIRM virtually to any caregiver in Pennsylvania who could benefit from support. Our virtual series, hosted through zoom, is four sessions. This series is FREE! Each session is about two hours. Contact us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our May Thursday series begins 5/21/2020. Our June Monday series begins 6/1/2020. To register, please complete this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1LccLDGQ3JyLghfUJNtzK188FWdo9pPhpNKFKRRfSUz8/edit
If you’re not sure if AFFIRM is right for you, check out our weekly zoom meetings for caregivers. Drop in for a few minutes or stay for the entire hour. During these caregiver only discussions, we’ll check in wtih you to see how you’re doing, provide information on virtual resources available to you and for LGBTQ+ youth, and answer any questions you might have.
