The Trevor Project, the leading suicide prevention organization for LGBTQIA+ young people, has published the results of their 2022 survey on mental health. This report amplifies the experiences of diverse LGBTQIA+ young people and brings new knowledge and clinical implications to mental health. The youth have bravely shared their experiences. The national survey captures the experiences of nearly 34,000 LGBTQ people ages 13-24 across the US in 2022, by all 50 states.
