FACTS ABOUT SUICIDE IN YOUTH
Supporting the LGBT+ Youth
Learn the signs, and facts, and how we can help prevent suicide. Each one of us can play a vital role in ensuring that all young people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, are provided with safe, accepting and supportive environments at home, at school and in their communities. As a parent or educator, you can be a lifeguard for your children or students by understanding the warning signs and risk factors of suicide and letting the youth in your life know that support is always available if they need it.
A Handbook for LGBTQ Young People
"Exploring your sexual orientation and/or gender identity can bring up a lot of feelings and questions.
