The Trevor Project

Screenshot
Educators, school counselors, parents, and young people may want to check out The Trevor Project, a national organization whose mission is "to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning young people." In addition to their valuable crisis helplines for suicide prevention, The Trevor Project provides other resources such as their Lifeguard Workshop, which is a free educational curriculum that aims to help adults create a supportive environment for LGBTQ youth and includes a video and downloadable lesson plans. Another valuable resource featured here is a Model School District Policy that was developed to "help educators and school administrators implement comprehensive suicide prevention policies," both of which can be found under Education. Readers should also visit the Resources section, which features helpful information about preventing suicide, such as how to recognize warning signs and risk factors, as well as the Trevor Support Center, a collection of knowledge for LGBTQ youth and their allies about identity, relationships, mental health, and more. Founded in 1998 by filmmakers Peggy Rajski and Randy Stone and writer James Lecesne, The Trevor Project was named after their Oscar-winning short film Trevor, which interested readers can watch in its entirety on the History & Film page (found under About).
