In Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth, we will take a deeper look into the Trevor Project’s CARE (Connect, Accept, Respond, Empower) concept, which will provide attendees with an interactive and intensive overview of suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) youth, and the different environmental stressors that contribute to their heightened risk for suicide.

Penelope French from the The Trevor Project joins us to create dialogue around being an adult ally for LGBTQ youth by providing a basic framework of understanding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) youth and the unique challenges they often face.
