What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mental Health

Non-judgmental counselors help LGBT people deal with depression, anxiety, fear, grief, stress, conflict, prejudice, and coming out. Persad Center's counselors are specially trained and particularly sensitive to experiences common among gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. Psychiatric services are also available when needed.

Population(s) Served

Persad Center has served people affected by HIV/AIDS since 1982, providing counseling for newly diagnosed and long-term survivors of HIV disease and those who care for them. Information and support to help manage the disease, support groups, education, prevention, and HIV testing are also available.

Population(s) Served

Persad Center provides a safe place for youth to deal with issues of sexual or gender identity and encouragement to make healthier choices. LGBT youth are at high risk for depression, suicide attempts, HIV exposure, substance abuse, and physical and verbal harrassment. Persad Center also supports parents of LGBT youth and same sex couples with children to help improve family relationships.

Population(s) Served

Persad Center provides professional training programs, as well as speakers, educational symposiums and internships. Persad provides training programs for schools, companies, healthcare and other human service organizations. Our programs assist companies in changing their culture and creating welcoming environments for customers and employees.
