Family Rejection

 
 

The Need For Familial Support

In general, LGBT youth are at higher risks for substance abuse, physical abuse, and homelessness than their straight peers. Those alarming statistics are only amplified when rejected by their family. 

LGBT youth who come from highly rejecting families are 8 times more likely to attempt suicide than LGBT youth who have the family support.
