The beginning of school marks a challenging time for LGBT youths, but luckily they have a friend in The Trevor Project. This September the organization will raise awareness though The Trevor Project’s National Suicide Prevention Month. During the month, people nationwide are invited to join “Talk to Me,” the campaign for conversation. “Talk to Me” is rooted in research that indicates help-seeking behaviors and access to care can have a dramatic effect on suicide prevention. By making it ok to offer help and being willing to connect a person with life-saving resources, with only 3 simple words, a person can help save a life. “With the changes and transitions of new school, work, and schedules that occur this time of year, September can be a challenging time for many people. Those challenges can increase risk factors for suicide such as stress, anxiety, and isolation, which is why we recognize September as National Suicide Prevention Month,” said Abbe Land, Executive Director & CEO of The Trevor Project.
