Welcome to The Center's LGBT Mental Health Needs Assessment! We need your help to understand the mental and emotional health needs of the LGBTQIA community in the Coachella Valley. With this information, we'll be able to provide services and programs to improve the quality of life for all members of the LGBTQIA community.

This survey will ask you a variety of questions about your mental health and emotional well-being. You will also be asked some demographic questions like your age, gender, and sexual orientation. The survey should take you about 10 minutes to complete. You can skip any questions that make you uncomfortable, and you can quit at any time.

Your responses will be kept completely anonymous. That means we will not ask your name or your address or any information that could link you to your responses. Trained researchers will handle your data with care to make sure all your information is protected.

All participants will be entered to win a $100 Visa card. Winners will be notified on or before February 28, 2019. There is a link on the last page of this survey to take you to a separate survey to enter your name and contact information for the drawing; this will ensure that your contact information is not linked in any way to your responses here so your information will remain 100% anonymous.

Your answers will direct resources to fill needs in the LGBTQIA community. Please take the time to answer this survey thoughtfully and with care, and please pass the survey link on to other people you know who might be willing to take it. The more people who take this survey, the better our understanding will be of mental health needs in the community.

If you would like to take the survey on paper instead of online, please contact us and we will send you the survey.

This survey is conducted by HARC (Health Assessment and Research for Communities) on behalf of the LGBT Community Center of the Desert (The Center). For more information, please contact us:
