Orange County Behavioral Health Support

At Radiant Health Centers, we offer counseling and social services to the LGBTQ+ community in Orange County. People living with HIV and others in the LGBTQ+ community experience mental health issues at disproportionate rates. By providing individual and group therapy with compassionate counselors, we ensure mental health services are accessible to everyone who needs them.

Affordable Mental Health Counseling

People living with HIV commonly face mood, anxiety and mental health disorders. Many other LGBTQ+ people face similar issues due to discrimination, family issues and barriers to healthcare. However, with access to convenient counseling services, these challenges can be overcome.

Our counselors strive to meet the needs of our patients by offering therapy to treat anxiety and depression, troubled relationships, self-esteem and substance abuse for patients at least 12 years old. Counseling services are free for those who qualify.
