But where do we even start?</p><p>According to the <a href="https://www.thetrevorproject.org/survey-2023/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">2023 U.S. National Survey on the Mental Health of LGBTQ Young People</a>, nearly 1 in 3 youths said their mental health was poor most of the time or always due to anti-LGBTQ policies and legislation. Fewer than 40% of LGBTQ young people found their home to be affirming, and 41% said that they had seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year. The numbers were higher among those who are transgender, nonbinary, and/or people of color. </p><p>Fighting the tidal wave of misinformation and targeted attacks can feel overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone. When we come together as a community to equip ourselves with facts and evidence-based research, we can make an impact and save lives. </p><p>Join Schuyler Bailar for a 2-hour workshop on supporting trans youth. Whether you are a parent or family member, healthcare provider, teacher, or someone who wants to know how to advocate for trans youth, this seminar will provide you with invaluable resources.</p><p>All are welcome, regardless of gender history. Cisgender (not transgender) folks are strongly encouraged to attend, furthering their efforts to support trans and other marginalized folks during this time. Fellow trans folks are, of course, also welcome; the seminar will help provide you with better tools to engage in conversations advocating for yourself.</p><p>Registration is $20.
