LGF Intake and Triage Service
If you need some help but aren’t sure which service is best to use, our Intake and Triage Service provides information and support to help you get access to the services you need, as well as giving you the space to talk and receive some emotional support and guidance.
We have a mental health worker from Manchester’s Primary Care Mental Health Service running a weekly outreach mental health clinic at the LGF every Friday.
This clinic is by appointment only.
To come along, you need to:

The clinic is every Friday at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation. map

*Trans is an umbrella and inclusive term used to describe the whole range of people whose own gender identity and/or gender expression differs in some way from the gender assumptions made about them at birth and from the consequent biological sex assigned to them. This applies not only to those who identify as transgender or intersex but to anyone who feels that the gender assigned to them at birth incompletely or does not at all describe their own innate gender identity. Trans includes but is not limited to: transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, non-binary, gender-fluid, gender nonconforming, intersex, third gender, twin spirited, transvestite, cross-dresser, bi-gender, trans man, trans women, agender, gender independent, and non-gender, as well as other non-binary identities
