LGBTQ & Gender-Affirming Spaces This brief uses data from The Trevor Project’s ?2020 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health to examine the association between access to affirming spaces and suicide attempts. LGBTQ youth are at elevated risk for poor mental health and suicide compared with straight/cisgender peers (Johns et al, 2019; Johns et al., 2020). Because this risk is related to the harmful ways LGBTQ youth are treated, rather than something about being LGBTQ in itself, increased acceptance and affirmation can reduce risk (Meyer, 2016). All LGBTQ youth deserve access to spaces — such as homes, schools, and workplaces -- that positively affirm their LGBTQ identity. Unfortunately, not all LGBTQ youth experience acceptance of their identity, and physical distancing policies implemented to minimize the health risks of the COVID-19 pandemic can disrupt access to existing affirming spaces (Green, Price-Feeney, & Dorsion, 2020). This may be particularly true for transgender and nonbinary youth who have increased risk for attempting suicide due in large part to increased exposure to minority stress (Price-Feeney, Green, & Dorison, 2020; Hendricks & Testa, 2012).   December 2020

LGBTQ+ Youth: How to Help Yourself or a Friend HRC Foundation, Child Mind Institute This tip sheet from the gives guidance for LGBTQ+ youth on how to take care of their mental health. Mental health is an important part of our overall health and well-being. Feeling sad, alone, worried, or scared is very likely a sign that our mental health is in need of care, just like having a cough or a bruise that won’t heal is a sign of needing care. It is often difficult to talk about our feelings or needs for support but talking about mental health symptoms and getting help are the first steps in taking care of our mental health. When we feel happy, safe, and supported, we are more likely to succeed in school, maintain meaningful relationships and reach our hopes and dreams.

Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) youth within in welfare: Prevalence, risk and outcomes The purpose of this study was to estimate the population of sexual minority or LGB (lesbian, gay and bisexual) children and youth involved with the child welfare system, and to compare their health, mental health, placement and permanency outcomes to those of non-LGB youth. Data were drawn from the Second National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW-II), a nationally representative sample of children who were referred to child welfare due to a report of abuse or neglect over a fifteen month period. Results indicate that approximately 15.5% of all system involved youth identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual, and that lesbian and bisexual females, and LGB youth of color are both overrepresented within child welfare systems. Although no substantive difference in risk factors, permanency and placement were found between LGB and Non-LGB youth, LGB youth were significantly more likely to meet the criteria for adverse mental health outcomes. Implications for child welfare practice and policy are presented, along with recommendations for future research in this area.
