May topic: Mental Health of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Questioning (LGBTQ) Youth
LGBTQ youth often face stigma and social prejudice in the process of exploring sexuality and gender identity. This makes them more vulnerable to mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, substance use, and suicide. Join our panel as they discuss how families, schools and communities can battle discrimination, create safe spaces, and empower LGBTQ youth to live full and proud lives.
