At Diverse & Resilient, we see a future where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people in Wisconsin thrive, living healthy, satisfying lives in safe, supportive communities.

Our long-term objective is to eliminate health disparities between LGBTQ people and the general population, as measured by commonly accepted indicators of physical and mental health. These health disparities occur in four areas:

  • Mental Health
  • Sexual Health
  • Partner & Community Violence
  • Substance Use

The key social determinant of these health disparities is anti-LGBTQ discrimination. To that end, our work also includes efforts to increase acceptance, end discrimination, and build leadership skills and confidence among LGBTQ people.

The PRISM Program is a new pilot program to connect LGBTQ+ youth (16-26 years old) in Wisconsin with trained peer-specialists who can provide mental and emotional support and mentorship. PRISM stands for Peer Recovery in Supportive Mutuality. We see that connection based on community and solidarity has transformative power, similar to the way a prism refracts light to create a beautiful rainbow.

Please note: We do not have feedback from anyone who has participated in or endorsed this program
