Pieces to Pathways (P2P) was highlighted in CAMH’s Spring 2016 Newsletter along with Dr. Alex Abramovich. The article covers the work done by Dr. Abramovich and P2P to build culturally specific services for LGBTQ youth.

Check out P2P at the bottom section titled “A new substance use support program for LGBTQ youth”. Please see below for a link of the article:

Striving to end LGBTQ youth homelessness

“P2P is ready to deliver services to support queer and trans youth with their substance use,” says Geoffrey Wilson, Co-founder of P2P, along with Tim McConnell. “Our initial observations revealed that program participants really appreciated having a space to talk about their substance use as it relates to their gender and sexuality, while also knowing that the facilitators were queer and/or trans and had their own experiences with addiction, substance use and recovery. We try our best so that queer and trans youth get the support they want and have their experiences affirmed, not denied.”
