Advancing Healthy Outcomes: Eight Ways to Promote the Health and Well-Being of LGBTQ+ Youth Involved with Child Welfare through FFPSA Center for the Study of Social Policy The Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA) marks a substantial movement toward child welfare reform by beginning to bring child welfare financing into alignment with what research tells us is best for children and families: keeping children in their homes whenever safe and possible — and when children have to be placed in foster care —ensuring they are in the most family-like, least restrictive setting that will meet their needs.

Association of Nondiscrimination Policies With Mental Health Among Gender Minority Individuals Alex McDowell, RN, MSN, MPH; Julia Raifman, ScD; Ana M. Progovac, PhD; Sherri Rose, PhD We examined the association between health insurance nondiscrimination policies and mental health outcomes for gender minority individuals. Using a large, private health insurance claims database, we constructed a sample of enrollees with gender minority–related diagnosis codes in 2009- 2017. We used a difference-in-differences design to evaluate changes in suicidality and inpatient mental health hospitalizations among gender minority enrollees in states with and without nondiscrimination policies. The present study was conducted from August 1, 2018, to September 1, 2019. CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE Implementation of a state-level nondiscrimination policy appears to be associated with decreased or no changes in suicidality among gender minority individuals living in states that implemented these policies from 2013 to 2016. Given high rates of suicidality among gender minority individuals in the US, health insurance nondiscrimination policies may offer a mechanism for reducing barriers to care and mitigating discrimination.   September 2020
