April 2024 Therapy Support Groups Report

Mama Dragons is so very appreciative of your continued support and generosity, as we refine and expand our collaboration with Flourish Therapy, to build a safe space for parents of LGBTQ children (of any age.)

 

Over the past six months, we have held therapeutic group sessions on Eating Disorders, Substance Abuse, Self-Harm, Suicidal Ideation, Chronic Depression & Anxiety, and Non-Affirming Family Dynamics. Next month, we will offer more general therapy groups, with a greater focus on tools and resources. We are hoping this less-topic focused platform will be more inviting to participants, and will encourage them to attend LIFT throughout the duration of their need or crisis. 

 

In addition to our virtual sessions, we will also be focusing on this vital mission during our 2024 “LUV Without Limits” Parent Education Conference, being held at the Salt Lake City Marriott (Downtown-City Creek location) on October 18&19, 2024.

This supportive and educative gathering for parents, caregivers, and mental health providers of LGBTQ kids, is being brought to you by Mama Dragons, Dragon Dads, Flourish Therapy, Mormon Mental Health Association, and Equality Utah.

 

Together, we can learn, connect, and create a more supportive environment for LGBTQ individuals and their families. Having one affirming parent reduces the risks of suicidal ideation and self-harm by more than 40%.

 

Please join us in person October 18th&19th, connect with us online at www.mamadragons.org, and continue to generously support the creation and strengthening of affirming homes for individuals who identify as LGBTQ.
