Radical Self-Care

Our Radical Self-Care course (RadSec) is an 8 week group course aiming to help build resilience, teaching self-care and mindfulness skills tailored to the unique mental health needs and experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals.


These courses are completely free of charge and are available UK-wide, mainly delivered online.


The context and lived experience of being LGBTQ+ is taken into account in this course, for example, addressing the impact of internalised shame and LGBTQ+ negativity by supporting self-acceptance, self-care, and self-worth.


RadSec is a strengths-based model that helps people enhance their capacity for awareness and emotional balancing. Recent research has shown that this course improves psychological wellbeing and reduces self-criticism, perfectionism, and shame.
