RECLAIM's mission is to increase access to mental health care for queer and trans youth so they may reclaim their lives from oppression in all its forms. We're one of the only organizations in Minnesota that offers financially accessible, specialized mental health care to this population.
We serve youth ages 12-25 and their families by providing individual, couples, family, and group therapy. We specialize in assisting youth with gender identity and sexual orientation exploration, in addition to treating other mental health concerns impacting youth and young adults such as anxiety, depression, and pervasive trauma. Beyond our therapy work, RECLAIM engages in community events and offers training and consultation services to help our partners improve their ability to work with queer and trans folks. RECLAIM offers an equity-based sliding scale for all our services.
Thank you for your interest in RECLAIM! Here are some ways for you to get involved:
*We have chosen to use the term “queer and trans youth” because this is how the youth we work with overwhelmingly self-identify and prefer to be named. Self-determination—including the power to define oneself—is a heavy source of both historical oppression and survival/resistance/healing. For many youth in our communities, the term LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) is a label that has been put on them, while the terms “queer” and “trans” are chosen and preferred.
RECLAIM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our EIN is 80-0829665.
