Trevor Project has launched a brand-new PSA campaign showcasing first-person accounts of youths who have reached out for help. The Ask For Help Campaign’s message is simple: Whether you reach out to a friend, a teacher, a counselor, or a person who works for the Trevor Project, ask for help. According to Trevor Project: “When a young person is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning, this stigma can be even bigger, especially if they face barriers to accessing help if their family or community has rejected them. However, many young people do seek help from people they know and trust. Once they take the first step and ask for help, their chances of finding supportive resources increases, lowering their risk for suicide – and that can be life-saving.”

In honor of Suicide Prevention Month and World Suicide Prevention Day, please make a donation to The Trevor Project that has worked tirelessly to help prevent suicide among LGBT youths since 1998.
