Queer and Trans Health Resources
Lewis & Clark College is committed to supporting a culture of respect and safety for people of all gender identities, gender expression, and sexual orientations. This entails providing a learning environment free of all forms of abuse, assault, harassment, and coercive conduct, including sexual misconduct.
The Office of Equity and Inclusion has a list of resources for queer students at Lewis & Clark College outside of health and wellness, such as college policies, local advocacy groups, and affiliated student organizations. Physical and mental health resources are listed below:
Physical and Mental Health Resources
- The Health Service provides respectful, compassionate medical services for students of all gender identities and sexual orientations. Staff can provide most services in-house for acute or stable chronic health needs. For trans-specific medical care, online appointments with experienced staff are available. Staff also have resources to connect you with outside providers for procedures or services that they are unable to provide in-house.
- The Counseling Service offers individual therapy to all queer and trans Lewis & Clark Students, working with them with positivity, dignity, and respect. Students can contact the Counseling Service via phone or in person to set up an appointment, or can also drop-in during walk-in hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 2-3:30 PM.
- The Case Management Office works with students one-on-one to tackle any issues that are affecting students’ personal or academic lives. Staff connect students with trans-specific medical and mental health care providers, work with other offices on campus to provide accommodations, and much more.
- Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW) provides in-depth information related to the physical and mental health and wellness of trans and queer students. The office runs campus-wide programming and can meet with students one-on-one to discuss a specific health topic. HPW also has substantial print and digital resources to learn more about holistic well-being including addiction, assault/trauma and recovery, and safe sex.
- The OHSU Transgender Health Program provides medical care to those who are undergoing gender-affirming surgeries and/or hormone treatment.
- Pivot at Prism Health provides free HIV and STI screenings for the queer community
