This listing attempts to compile contact information of medical doctors and mental health professionals (including psychiatrists, counseling psychologists and clinical social workers) who have been known to (or are willing to) see clients from the LGBTQIA+ community. It is Chennai-centric, but we are trying to add resources from other cities and towns in India.

Disclaimers: 

  • This list is based on word-of-mouth from community members and/or the stated willingness of providers. Orinam does not provide any endorsement of the services.
  • Many of the providers linked below consult at multiple locations. Mention of a particular hospital/clinic does not imply an endorsement of that facility over others. We do not accept ads, paid or otherwise.
  • If you are LGBTQIA+ and would like to add a provider to this list, please let us know.
  • The ‘References from’ section mentions the identity of the person(s) who referred the provider. It doesn’t mean that the provider only sees clients of that (sub-)group
  • If you are a health-care provider mentioned here, and would like to be removed from this list, please drop us a note.
