A Safe Space
UPMC Western Behavioral Health recognizes the unique behavioral health needs of the LGBTQ+ community and the importance affirmation and acceptance play in behavioral health. Family and friends are very important to a patient's recovery process and we support and respect our patients’ families of choice. Research shows that the LGBTQ+ community, particularly trans and nonbinary people, face greater barriers to quality behavioral healthcare and increased risk of behavioral health crises. UPMC Western Behavioral Health strives to adhere to the American Psychological Association’s Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People as well as the core value of treating every patient with dignity and respect.
