Every Life Matters

Suicide is a deeply concerning issue within the LGBTQIA+ community, with individuals facing higher rates of suicidal ideation, attempts, and completed suicides compared to their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts. Discrimination, stigma, rejection, and lack of support can contribute to feelings of isolation and hopelessness among LGBTQIA+ individuals, making suicide prevention efforts critically important.

In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the need for targeted suicide prevention strategies that address the unique challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ individuals. These efforts aim to create safe and supportive environments, increase access to culturally competent mental health services, and promote acceptance and affirmation of diverse identities.

LGBTQIA+ suicide prevention initiatives often involve a combination of education, advocacy, and support services tailored to the needs of the community. This includes training mental health professionals to provide LGBTQIA+-affirming care, implementing anti-bullying policies in schools, and raising awareness about the warning signs of suicide and available resources.

Within this page you will find links to resources about LGBTQIA+ suicide prevention, highlighting both the challenges and opportunities for creating a more supportive and inclusive environment for LGBTQIA+ individuals at risk of suicide. Whether you’re a mental health professional, educator, ally, or member of the LGBTQIA+ community, we hope that the content within the following resource links will inspire action and collaboration to prevent suicide and promote mental wellness for our entire community.
