Which LBGTQIA+ treatment is best suited for me?

Your mental health specialist gets to know you on a personal level to determine which treatments are best for you. They ask about your mood, thoughts, and emotions during a mental health evaluation. Your provider also discusses your lifestyle, interpersonal relationships, and more and asks about your goals. 

If you’re a candidate for medications, GeneSight® genetic testing helps determine which medicines are likely the most effective based on your genes.
