The Trevor Project: Helping prevent LGBTQ+ suicide

This organization provides a great deal of information and recourses to help educators and administrators prevent youth suicide which disproportionately affects LGBTQ+ youth. It’s geared toward middle and high school range, but I think it could be adapted and used in other contexts.

    I am very glad to see that you posted about this organization. This is a prominent organization advocating resources, support, suicide prevention and more for LGBTQ+ youth. I have worked with this organization in the past and I believe more high school and middle school educators should be aware of this resource or similar ones to provide to students who could be struggling or facing challenges. I also believe many students are unaware that support organizations like this exist. Financial support is also always needed for organizations like this in order to survive. Financial and other donations can usually be declared as tax deductions as well.

    I found this is a great updated resource website. I looked at the handbook of coming out and the design of it is really age-appropriated. So I think the organizers are really put in a lot of effort. I really like how they explain the understanding of gender (https://www.thetrevorproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Coming-Out-Handbook.pdf). I found the internet is really a great tool for the underrepresented groups to voice out and let the community help them.

    I agree with you, Miranda. We can use this in wider contexts. I think this can be adapted into the classroom as language materials to teach students.
