Ley Cray as Director of LGBTQIA+ Programming


New key hire to help reshape mental health care for LGBTQIA+ youth

Charlie Health, the first and only virtual mental health clinic for patients who need intensive mental health care, is excited to appoint Ley Cray as Director of LGBTQIA+ Programming. A trauma-informed yoga instructor, mindfulness coach, and certified philosophical consultant, Ley is on a mission to re-shape mental health care into an accessible, affirming practice for all young adults, with a specific focus on the needs of LGBTQIA+ youth. Ley joins the Charlie Health team at a critical moment, with recent research finding that LGBTQIA+ youth are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide compared to non-LGBTQIA+ youth (source).

Beyond her role at Charlie Health, Cray teaches Trans Yoga and Queer Mindfulness classes and is co-founder of the Mind-Body Ecology Institute. Cray received her Ph.D. in Philosophy at the Ohio State University and is currently pursuing her certification in Koru Mindfulness and Sexuality Counseling.

“As Charlie Health continues to expand, there’s no one better to spearhead our LGBTQIA+ Programming than Ley,” said Carter Barnhart, CEO, and Co-Founder of Charlie Health. “She will be integral to innovating our mental health services for kids who need it most.” In her new role, Cray will develop and lead therapy groups for Charlie Health patients (over half of whom are LGBTQIA+), their parents, and Charlie Health alumni. She’ll also provide regular consultations for company staff on cutting-edge LGBTQIA+ concepts and care.

“The struggles of adolescents and young adults in LGBTQIA+ communities are real, and persistent lack of validation and proper mental health care is devastating. When our LGBTQIA+ youth seek help, they deserve the best, most compassionate care provided by the best, most knowledgeable providers,” said Cray. “I’m honored to bring my expertise, lived experience, and passion to Charlie Health, leading and growing our services so that we may provide the most innovative, effective, and affirming care possible.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
