Levelling Minds

The Levelling Minds program empowers trans and non-binary youth with tools to navigate stress and enhance well-being, while also equipping their families and adult supporters with skills for fostering safer, more supportive environments.


Registration is now open. Program starts on Thursday, November 16.

Levelling Minds is a nine-week program designed specifically for trans and non-binary youth and their adult supporters. We provide two tailored groups, each focusing on nurturing emotional wellness and building effective communication tools, all under the guidance of experienced mental health counsellors. Please note that Levelling Minds is not a therapeutic program.
