Youth Voices: Providing Healthy Support Systems to Our LGBTQ+ Youth

Register for our Virtual Mental Health Town Hall!

November 15th, 2022


This event is geared towards youth, parents, foster parents, caregivers, guardians, extended family members, mental health professionals, and service providers.

The third event in our series provides an opportunity to hear directly from the LGBTQ+ youth in our community.  They will share the challenges they have faced, support systems that have been helpful and ideas for improved support for the LGBTQ+ community.

The event will bring together 3-4 youth panelists with lived experience. Each panelist will have 10 minutes to share their story (if they feel comfortable doing so).  The remainder of the program will be reserved for Q&A from the audience.


  • – Identify and share ways family members, school staff, service providers and the community as a whole can       support the mental wellness of LGBTQ+ youth
  • – Identify local and national resources available to support LGBTQ+ youth
