Mary Kate – Another Name for Courage

“Over time I was losing hope in physical therapy and the medications were increasingly numbing me,” explains Mary Kate. “By my 21st birthday, the best way I can describe my life is it felt like I had lost my identity, my identity as a sister, daughter, friend. I no longer recognized the 14-year-old Mary Kate who had been so full of life and neither did anyone else around me.”    

KWC Support for LGBTQ+ Pride – After the Parade is Over

While belonging to the LGBTQ+ community can be a source of strength, it also brings unique challenges. Members of this community are at a higher risk for experiencing mental wellness conditions — especially depression, anxiety, and suicidality. Many in the LGBTQ+ community face discrimination, prejudice, denial of civil and human rights, harassment, and family rejection, any of which can lead to new or worsened symptoms.
