Mental Health services are crucial for everyone but research shows that there is a greater need of support for those of us who are LGBTQ+ in order to develop confidence, self-esteem and good mental health.
The Metro Centre is proud of its long tradition of providing mental health services to the LGBTQ+ community and beyond. Our services at METRO are aimed at creating a safe and friendly space for you to get the support that you need.
For more advice and information about the services we offer, please email Heelah Scholam or call her on 020 8305 5009 to make an appointment.
If you are unsure about whether counselling is for you or you just want to talk informally about what counselling is then please email Heelah or call her on 020 8305 5000 to make an appointment.
Kwasi - Mentoring
During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.
Abimbola- First Point
It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.
Ebere - First Point
I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.
