Created July 23, 2018
High school is a hard time for many students, let alone LGBTQ+ students struggling to navigate high school in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama.   

The Oasis Center in Nashville, TN offers a broad spectrum of programs to help young people find their strengths, use their skills, and break down barriers.  One of these incredibly important programs is Just Us .  Dedicated to helping LGBTQ+ teens be their authentic selves, the Just Us program creates a welcome and safe place that empowers youth with tools to safely navigate the world around them.   

Mental health care isn’t always a budgeted expense, and Just Us is committed to offering quality counseling services for youth and families seeking assistance related to gender identity and/or sexual orientation.  Just Us' therapist provides group, family, and individual counseling, as well as referrals to medical providers, legal assistance, and other providers as needed. 
70% of the teens in the Just  Us program have seriously considered suicide. 
30% of these teens have actually attempted suicide. 
It is extremely important for teens to have access to mental health care and Just Us is doing just that, but they need your help

The CAA LGBT Alliance and CMT invite you to make a donation to help fund a full time therapist at The Oasis Center for the Just Us program.   This therapist will provide counseling services to LGBTQ+ teens and their families free of charge!   100% of your donation will go to securing free mental health care for the teens of Just Us.   

Donate.  Share.  Help us meet our goal to provide another year of free therapy to students like Avery and Dee and Natalia.

Thank you so much to everyone that donated, shared and helped us raise money for the incredibly important role of full time therapist for the Just Us Program.

We are so grateful that we were able to raise over $7k through this Go Fund Me fundraiser!

We hope that you continue to support causes such as this in the future and help be the change we wish to see in the world.

Gratefully,

CAA Nashville LGBT Alliance

Thank you so much for your support!

In an effort to meet our goal, please continue to share and help us spread the word. We will be accepting donations until September 1st and the need to reach $50,000 is urgent.

In 2016, Tennessee HB1840 was signed into law which allows therapists and counselors with "sincerely held principles" to reject gay, lesbian, transgender and other clients.

Every penny donated goes directly to keep the Just Us program's therapist employed and LGBTQ+ teens the opportunity to talk with someone in a safe place who truly understands.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated and helps save lives.
