Every June we celebrate Pride Month to recognize the impact that LGBTQ+ people have made throughout history and to celebrate advances in equity and civil rights for LGBTQ+ communities.

It's also a good opportunity to remind any members of the Johns Hopkins community who may be in need of support that the university has resources available to help them.

A mental health and self-care resource guide features ways you can make positive connections, whether you're in crisis, curious about therapy, in need of peer support, or interested in community action, allyship, and advocacy.

The Johns Hopkins Employee Assistance Program, known as JHEAP, is offering an exclusive learning event titled Pride Month 2023: Workplace Diversity and Belonging, which is designed to promote self-affirmation and equality while increasing the visibility of LGBTQ+ people. Visit the CCA@Your Service website (company code: JHEAP) and go to News for You or Online Seminars to view the prerecorded seminar or download the audio transcript.

Also, be reminded that JHEAP offers you and your family members free, confidential access to support, guidance, and referrals for any issue on your mind. Counselors and work-life specialists can be reached confidentially 24/7 at 888-978-1262. You also can log on to or visit the CCA@YourService app (username: JHEAP) for information and resources related to emotional health, sexuality, diversity and equity, health and safety, and more.
