#ShowThemYouCARE #SuicidePrevention - September is National Suicide Prevention Month

According to The Trevor Project’s research, 40% of LGBTQ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past 12 months, with more than half of Trans and Nonbinary youth having seriously considered it.

As Patricia says in the video,
"Acceptance from at least one adult can decrease the risk of LGBTQ youth suicide by 40%."
