CarePlus presents A.L.L.I.E.S. (Acceptance, Life, Leadership, Identity, Education, & Support), a LGBTQ wellness and support group for youth age 13 through 18. Research indicates that LGBTQ youth who have peer-to-peer connectedness are more likely to have overall improved mental health status and sense of well-being than LGBTQ youth who lack connectedness and social support.

The A.L.L.I.E.S. wellness and support group provides that and more. Program Goals: A.L.L.I.E.S. creates a safe-space to empower LGBTQ youth, while providing self-help support strategies, peer connectedness, education, and an environment promoting wellbeing.
