New resource guide aims to connect LGBTQ Muslims with culturally-competent mental health and support services.

[Download the PDF announcement]

December 22, 2016 --  Following the election, MASGD has recognized an acute need in our community for culturally-competent mental health and support resources. We have compiled a basic resource guide for LGBTQ Muslims, with categories for helplines and hotlines, mental health provider directories, in-person groups, online resources, and readings. Each listing provides a link to the organization’s website, a description of what services they provide, and annotations that specify if the organization is geared towards Muslim people of specific descent/identities (e.g. Black, South Asian, South West Asian, North African) or if they have resources to accommodate our diverse and complex identities and experiences.

All of the included providers/services/resources have been minimally vetted in terms of quality of experience for LGBTQ Muslim people. Even so, please note this list is not comprehensive and MASGD does not expressly endorse any of the listed providers or services. This resource guide is not sponsored or sanctioned by the organizations listed. The resource guide does not replace counseling or other forms of therapy and is simply offered as  a community resource, which we hope to build upon in the future.

If you know of a mental health or support resource that should be included in our resource guide, we invite you to submit it to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
