Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning (LGBTQ) students at Rowan encounter the same struggles as other students but also manage the stress of navigating in a world that isn't fully accepting of people who are not heterosexual and cisgender.

Given negative messages in society, you might worry about what impact your sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship affiliation might have on your health, family relationships, friendships, religious beliefs, or legal rights. Examples of related stressors include:

  • Finding or building a supportive community
  • The coming out process
  • Understanding your identity
  • Worrying about others' reactions to coming out or changes in your relationship status
  • Tension in family relationships
  • Discrimination
  • Loneliness or isolation
  • Unhealthy coping strategies
  • Managing stress
  • Anxiety
  • Academic concerns
  • Relationship problems

Please reach out to the Wellness Center if any of these apply to you. Counseling & Psychological Services offers a wide range of services designed to support students in their personal and professional endeavors with the goal of promoting well-being in all aspects of life.
