Syntero offers comprehensive services specifically designed for the
LGBTQ+ community, provided by culturally competent staff members. During Pride
Month, Syntero celebrated the LGBTQ+ community by holding a fun event at The
Candle Lab to provide an opportunity for community members to meet program
coordinators while making candles. Twenty percent of all proceeds supported
Syntero’s LGBTQ+ programs. Later in the month, Syntero’s Family Pride Mixer
provided an opportunity for Syntero staff, program participants, potential
program participants and their families to socialize and support one another.
Syntero provides an array of LGBTQ+ services, including individual counseling, couples and family counseling,
sexual health education and yoga. Additionally, the Celebrate You! group for adolescents and the Celebrate Us! group for families and friends of members of the
LGBTQ+ community offer LGBTQ+ community members and supporters an opportunity
to socialize while addressing issues in a supportive, safe environment to lead
to positive outcomes and healthy/balanced lifestyles and choices for dealing
with identity issues.

Once a promising student, Hannah began drinking in high school attempting to ease her feelings of depression after the death of her childhood best friend. Soon she turned to marijuana and other drugs – prescription pain opiates, then heroin. She got pregnant, dropped out of high school and pushed her family away.
Theft to support her bad habits led to arrests. Her baby was placed with her parents to avoid placement in foster care. Hannah’s family knew she had hit rock bottom. They helped Hannah realize that she could work to get healthy again with the help of Syntero.
Hannah now receives Outpatient Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Counseling, and hand-in-hand with one of the Syntero case managers, she is reaching her goals of staying clean and sober and navigating her recovery strategy. Hannah has a job and has been learning how to be a good mother to her child. Hannah’s parents and siblings have seen their daughter and sister become herself again.
It hasn’t been easy for Hannah, but she is determined to succeed. Through Syntero, she receives the tools and support she needs to make today better than yesterday.
Help us on #GivingTuesday to care for children, adults and families in need of our aid in overcoming mental health and addition disorders in our community. Your generosity makes a difference!
