Get impartial, friendly and trust-worthy advice from an older LGBT+ person with similar lived experiences to you.
Have an open and honest conversation about coming out, family issues, relationships, careers, others’ identities, and more. We have mentors you can speak to for free, and you don’t have to be part of Young Persons Club or currently be accessing any of our other services.
Mentors are not counsellors, therapists nor teachers. They will never tell you what to do but will offer solutions to your current worries. Counsellors are trained professionals who specialise in talking therapies and in the majority of cases will focus on past events to reduce the impact of your past experiences on your present state of mind.
All matters discussed with a mentor are strictly confidential and will not be shared unless we are concerned about the risk of harm to you or others. In this instance we may seek additional professional advice or guidance on your behalf. You will be consulted and involved in all matters should this be the case.
You are not required to seek permission from a parent or guardian to receive mentoring support. We are able to offer you mentoring either at centre, or in a location of your choosing where you feel safe and comfortable.
Mosaic has helped me find the difference between how I truly feel and how someone wants me to feel. I don’t always have to change myself to fit someone else’s agenda or what they expect me to feel.
Going to Mosaic gave me more confidence. Being around so many people who were openly Queer really helped.
Mosaic has allowed me to gain so much confidence in myself. They’ve helped me through struggles not just with advice but with action. It’s allowed me to meet others like me and make me feel like any other teen.
