LGBTQ Youth Suicide Awareness

Oregon Family Support Network is offering LGBTQ Youth Suicide Awareness series.

We will explore the topic of increasing LGBTQ youth suicide awareness from the family perspective. We will navigate together where families can find expert information, be aware of risk factors, increase communication around suicide, as well as identify holistic ways we can address youth suicide based on all 10 family life domain areas. Families who identify as part of the LGBTQ community, as well as families who do not, are welcome to attend.
