The coronavirus crisis has severe implications for mental health, especially of vulnerable groups. Even prior to the pandemic, LGBTQ youths have been found to be at significantly increased risk for depression, anxiety and suicide. Therefore, LGBTQ youths may be particularly vulnerable to negative mental health impacts of Covid-19.
The Trevor Project is committed to ensuring that LGBTQ youth are supported throughout this pandemic by providing 24/7 access to an affirming international community for LGBTQ young people and trained crisis counsellors to talk directly with youth in crisis.
