SAGE (Sexuality and Gender Expansive) Intensive Outpatient Program

Support Groups

SAGE is led by clinical social worker Sarah Aked, MSW, LSW, who guides participants as they process their personal experiences effectively through DBT skills, mindfulness and a culturally responsive strengths-based approach.

SAGE offers a supportive and inclusive environment where individuals can:

  • Explore how their LGBTQ+ identity intersects with their mental health recovery.
  • Process feelings related to acceptance, chosen family, relationships and emotional well-being.
  • Build resiliency through communication and emotional regulation skills.
  • Process life events and learn tools for self-regulation.
  • Learn to participate in life again.
  • Find camaraderie and support from people with similar experiences.

Dates and times: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays | 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

SAGE is open to any adult (age 18+ and out of high school) who identifies as LGBTQ+ and lives with a primary mental health diagnosis. When making inquiries, please keep in mind that SAGE is not a support group; the ideal candidate is someone who wants to explore the unique connection between their queer identity and how it relates to their mental health recovery. We accept most commercial insurances and Medicaid.

To schedule an evaluation for this group, please call Central Intake at 888.227.3898.
