Each day this week, we are sharing a different factor that puts LGBTQ+ individuals at risk for mental health problems. The first post is about harassment and discrimination in education.

LGBTQ+ youth are often targets of ridicule, harassment, and bullying. According to a report published by the CDC in 2019, 43% of trans youth reported being bullied on school property.

Sadly, relentless bullying and harassment often lead to LGBTQ+ youth attempting suicide. An alarming statistic in the same study showed that 29% of trans youth, 21% of gay and lesbian youth, and 22% of bisexual youth have attempted suicide.

Here are some resources for LGBTQ+ youth provided by The HRC foundation: https://www.hrc.org/resources/lgbtq-youth
