Suicide Risk and Prevention for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth

This paper highlights the higher risk of suicidal behavior among lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) youth. The paper provides recommendations to reduce this risk by addressing stigma and prejudice at the institutional and individual level; by forming partnerships across youth-serving, suicide prevention, and LGBT youth agencies; by building on recent advances in research; and by responding to the issues of LGBT youth.
