CLEAR-OUTLET/ACS Partnership

Investigators: Kimberly Balsam, Ph.D., Vinisha Rana, M.A., & Sarah Burdge, PsyD.

Description: This project is a partnership between CLEAR and Outlet, a program of Adolescent Counseling Services that provides mental health counseling and support services to LGBTQ youth on the Bay Area Peninsula and provides training and psychoeducation for schools and communities to become more LGBTQ+-friendly. CLEAR faculty and students will work on site at ACS to develop intake measures, analyze existing program data, and seek to document the process of change in therapy as well as identify areas for program improvement. Adolescents are at particular risk for adverse outcomes, and Outlet provides comprehensive affirming services to mitigate these risks.
