At the Brattleboro Retreat, LGBTQ+ individuals find a safe, supportive community of professionals and peers in an identity-affirming setting. Free from judgment. Free from prejudice. Learn more about our LGBTQ+ adult inpatient program.
The Brattleboro Retreat recognizes that broad disparities exist in access to healthcare among the LGBTQ+ population. In 2022, the Retreat appointed a Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and convened a formal DEI committee to ensure that all individuals receive fair and equitable treatment at the Retreat. The DEI committee plays a crucial role in creating a welcoming and affirming environment for LGBTQ+ individuals.
