NYC LGBTQ+ Mental Health Resource List
If you are interested in submitting a licensed psychotherapist or psychiatrist listing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that as of September 22, 2020, due to increasing demand and need, I am temporarily accepting listings only for providers who are in network with insurance companies and/or who will offer sliding scale rates starting below $100 to users of this list. If this applies to you, please send the following information in this order:
Please note this compiled guide is currently a one-person volunteer project that grew out of the now-defunct NYC Queer Mental Health Initiative. It is not affiliated with any organizations, collectives, or Facebook groups (including Queer Mental Health), and listings are largely crowdsourced; not all information has been individually vetted.
