Did you know that 7.6 percent of GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, and Questioning) students felt unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation, and 43% because of their gender expression? GLBTQ youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide, experience suicidal thoughts, or engage in self-haring behaviors than their straight peers. The GLBTQ community is about three times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition such as major depression or generalized anxiety disorder.
As always, if you believe you or your child is having an emergency (includes immediate safety concern such as hinting or talking about suicide, self-harm, abuse, plan to run away, immediate risk of physical violence, severe anxiety or current panic/anxiety attack etc.), please contact:
