About Us


Our Mission

MN LGBTQ+ Therapists’ Network is a network of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, pansexual, two-spirit, and asexual affirming mental health and social service workers and their allies in Minnesota (MN).

As a network, we seek to: 

  • Provide opportunity for professional and social support

  • Exchange resources and referral ideas

  • Provide educational opportunities that further professional development

  • Affirm the LGBTQIAP2S+ communities 

We are committed to offering programming and online resources that promote connectivity, community, and education.

We are dedicated to expanding awareness towards diversity and inclusivity between and within our communities.


WHO WE ARE

Being primarily a white, cisgender middle-class, metro-based LGBTQ organization, we work to acknowledge our bias and privileges. We are committed to expanding our awareness and acceptance of diversity.

Our members are mental health professionals: in private practice, with mental health agencies, graduate students in psychology, marriage and family therapy, counseling, social work, and/or from advocacy organizations.

The majority of our members are located in the five county metro areas. Our other members hail from Greater MN, Wisconsin and Eastern North Dakota.

Currently, we are 100+ LGBTQIP2SA members strong, with an additional 350+ supportive and affirming people and organizations on our mailing list. We remain an all-volunteer organization.


History

Established in 1988 as the first professional organization of lesbian, gay, and bisexual therapists, the Minnesota LGBT+ Therapists Network has grown to become a way for LGBTQIAP2S mental health professionals and their allies to network, support, and educate each other and the community about issues related to mental health.

As a community of professionals, we deem it critical to move beyond the acknowledgement of differences, to being able to hold all intersections of age, gender, sexuality, race, ability, spirituality and socioeconomic status to find justice and equality in providing mental health services.
