BIPOC, LGBTQ+ & AAPI Resources

Connecting with a provider who has a shared identity can be pivotal in establishing a therapeutic relationship. The resources on this page are practices, organizations, and clinicians with specialization. We recommend starting your journey by meeting with a clinician at UHCS to assess what is going on, review insurance and identify clinicians who may suit your therapeutic needs.

The below list is not intended to take the place of connecting with UHCS providers; rather it serves as an additional resource for students who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and AAPI.
