Please see attached information about support groups that may be appropriate for your teen students.
Transgender & Nonbinary Teen Talk Group is appropriate for any teen (13-18 usually) who identifies as transgender, nonbinary/genderqueer or is questioning. This group meets the first Friday/month 530 pm-645 pm at 10 Ferry Street, Concord and is run by two transgender guys, one of whom is a LCMHC.
There is a Parents Group that meets at the same time in a separate room, which is facilitated by either me or a social worker who is the mom of a transgender teen. Additionally I offer a Mindfulness Group for Transgender and Nonbinary Folx, which is appropriate for teens who are interested in learning mindfulness skills. This group meets at Kimball Jenkins in Concord on the first Wednesday/month from 6-7pm and is run by a transgender woman, who is a LCMHC/MLADC and a seasoned meditation teacher. Allies are welcome in this group and I have some teens who come with a parent.
There is more info about these groups on my website, as well as the link to pre-register. All groups have a $5 suggested fee, if possible but not necessary. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or would like more information.
Warmly, Deb Horton
