As National Suicide Prevention month comes to a close, the Trevor Project announces major new initiative. This campaign aims to show LGBTQ youth that they are welcome, they are loved, and they deserve support.

In addition to it's new Times Square billboard, The Trevor Project has created an online PSA and will be debuting several new suicide prevention guides to empower people to start communicating and connecting about suicide so that LGBTQ youth in crisis feel empowered to get the care they need.

Trevor's shareable guides and posters will allow all to take part in raising awareness about suicide prevention, either digitally or in the classroom. With Trevor's Self-Care Guide, people in crisis can see how to take care of themselves at home, school, or in public. With Trevor's Suicide Prevention Guide, people who are unsure about how to offer help or people who don't know how to ask for help can find ways to connect, communicate, and get care. And, with Trevor's Back to School Guide, Trevor offers ways for schools, classmates, teachers, and youth-serving professionals to offer support and a more welcoming environment to LGBTQ youth in crisis.

To show LGBTQ youth that their lives matter, share Trevor's PSA or any of their suicide prevention guides at: thetrevorproject.org/SaveLGBTQLives. Communicating and connecting about suicide can be the first step towards empowering LGBTQ youth to get the care they need.
