Navigating the Tough Stuff: LGBTQ Suicide Awareness for Families

This webinar explores how to increase LGBTQ youth suicide awareness from the family perspective. Offered in collaboration with Oregon Family Support Network.


In this first session of Navigating the Tough Stuff we will explore the topic of increasing LGBTQ youth suicide awareness from the family perspective. We will navigate together where families can find expert information, be aware of risk factors, increase communication around suicide, as well as identify holistic ways we can address youth suicide based on all 10 family life domain areas. Join us on July 22, 2022, for the second session, Navigating the Tough Stuff: LGBTQ Suicide Prevention for Families. Each session is 90 minutes long.
