Get help

During adolescence you may feel that you are different from the rest of your peers. At this age, it can be difficult to be different and to stand out from the crowd, while your colleagues and friends may not be open to accept diversity. Under no circumstances should you fight with yourself, causing serious harm to your physical and mental health. Try to be honest first with yourself.

If you need information or want to talk to those who accept without judgment and support you, please contact us at 022 288861, 022 288863 or write us here.

If your rights have been violated or you have become victim of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, contact us and we will help you with legal counseling or support. Your confidentiality will be maintained as long as you want it to. Legal services are provided free of charge.

You can call 022 28-88-61, 022 28-88-63 from 11.00 to 18.00, from Monday to Friday.
