Understanding the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations The increase in prevalence and visibility of sexually gender diverse (SGD) populations illuminates the need for greater understanding of the ways in which current laws, systems, and programs affect their well-being. Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, non-binary, queer, or intersex, as well as those who express same-sex or -gender attractions or behaviors, will have experiences across their life course that differ from those of cisgender and heterosexual individuals. Characteristics such as age, race and ethnicity, and geographic location intersect to play a distinct role in the challenges and opportunities SGD people face. Understanding the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations reviews the available evidence and identifies future research needs related to the well-being of SDG populations across the life course. This report focuses on eight domains of well-being; the effects of various laws and the legal system on SGD populations; the effects of various public policies and structural stigma; community and civic engagement; families and social relationships; education, including school climate and level of attainment; economic experiences (e.g., employment, compensation, and housing); physical and mental health; and health care access and gender-affirming interventions. The recommendations of Understanding the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations aim to identify opportunities to advance understanding of how individuals experience sexuality and gender and how sexual orientation, gender identity, and intersex status affect SGD people over the life course.   2020
Vital Signs: Prevalence of Multiple Forms of Violence and Increased Health Risk Behaviors and Conditions Among Youths — United States, 2019 Corinne David-Ferdon, PhD Introduction: Experiencing violence, especially multiple types of violence, can have a negative impact on youths’ development. These experiences increase the risk for future violence and other health problems associated with the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among adolescents and adults. Conclusions and implications for public health practice: Many youths experience multiple types of violence, with potentially lifelong health impacts. Violence is preventable using proven approaches that address individual, family, and environmental risks. Prioritizing violence prevention is strategic to promoting adolescent and adult health.   February 2021

Your Rights Related to Sexual Reproductive Health: A Guide for Youth in Care This document is one of three in a compendium of sexual and reproductive health guidance and resources for child welfare jurisdictions from a national workgroup convened by CSSP. The goal of this document is to provide jurisdictions with a means of helping youth (in foster care or extended care) in understanding their SRH care rights, and give them practical information that will help them exercise their rights and getting their service needs met. The other two documents in this series include a policy and practice framework for child welfare leaders and policy makers and a practical tool meant specifically for use by caseworkers. Both this document and the one designed for caseworkers are aligned with the recommendations on current best practices around SRH policy and practice contained in the policy framework. Includes LGBTQ+ specific considerations and resources.
