LGBTQ Youth Resources
Tulare County partners with The Trevor Project to provide an around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning) youth in crisis, as well as for family and friends of these youth.
Every day, The Trevor Project saves young lives through its free and confidential lifeline, in-school workshops, educational materials, online resources, and advocacy. The program promotes acceptance of LGBTQ youth and promotes mental health and positive self-esteem.
The Trevor Project also helps to expand knowledge of available resources for the community, provides referrals to community mental health services, and provides information and resources to family and friends of LGBTQ community members in need of mental health services.
Trevor provides training such as the Lifeguard Workshops that educate participants in youth suicide prevention and LGBTQ-specific lifesaving strategies. Custom training related to youth suicide prevention for businesses, community groups, faith-based organizations, and so forth, are available upon request.
Locally, The Trevor Project interfaces with resources such as PFLAG, Pride Lions, and Gay-Straight Alliance clubs.
