Welcome all. UMLCS understands that transgender and gender non-binary students often come to college with specific needs, challenges and life experiences related to their gender experience that may be different than other students. We also know that just because someone is transgender or has a gender identity outside the binary does not mean that they are mentally ill or that they necessarily need mental health support. Transgender and gender non-binary students may access UMLCS for reasons related to their gender or not, but all reasons to access free and confidential individual and group counseling are valid.
