LGBTQIA+ Peer Mentoring
Milkweed is committed to providing peer support to LGBTQIA+ youth and adults. Our LGBTQIA+ support providers share the experience of growing up and coming out as queer and/or transgender in Wisconsin. They use their lived experience -- the challenges and the triumphs -- to share knowledge, compassion, and support for those people with similar circumstances.
As LGBTQIA+ specialists, their role is to support people who:
Have challenges and goals specifically related to gender and sexual identity
Identify as LGBTQIA+ and need support working on goals related to their mental health or substance use, or
Identify as LGBTQIA+ and need support developing independent living skills
