Address the many gaps in mental health care and community healing by sharing this information and/or donating to QTPoC Mental Health so we can create free-to-access resources.

We focus on the needs of queer & trans people of color (QTPoC) as a way of addressing all the silenced identities that are overlooked in social support systems, including disabled people of color, Latinx trans women and femmes, Black bisexuals, Muslims living with anxiety, Indigenous individuals worldwide, Asian survivors of violence, and many more people living at various intersections of oppression.

icuTalks is not stating that all individuals and programs listed on our resource page are Christians. We hold no responsibility regarding your experience.  We are unaware of what providers take what insurance providers.  Please check with the provider directly.  Our prayer is that you continue your journey with whatever and whoever will deepen your faith. 

Our Mantra

We believe that we are all created, redeemed, and sustained in the love of God.

We are chosen and called by God to be instruments to do his work and speak out to him, to tell others of the night and day difference.

From nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.

1 Peter 2:9-10
