The Trevor Project
The Trevor Project provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth. This organization is dedicated to giving struggling youth the resources, support, and life-affirmation that they need. Growing up, many kids may feel isolated and hopeless as they discover their sexual orientation. The Trevor Project promotes acceptance of LGBTQ youth, increases awareness around LGBTQ issues, and it advocates for more comprehensive suicide prevention policies in schools.
The Trevor Project has several programs designed to help youth learn about themselves and accept their sexuality. The Trevor Lifeline (1-866-488-7386) is the only nationwide, 24/7 suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline for LGBTQ youth; this hotline provides free and completely confidential counselling. The organization also offers TrevorChat, a free, confidential, and secure messaging service online, AskTrevor, a confidential Q&A forum for youth online, and TrevorSpace, a social network through which LGBTQ youth can connect with friends and allies.
If you are thinking about suicide or harming yourself, please call immediately: 866-488-7386
