Resources for Unlearning and Transforming Racism

Here are ways and resources to better serve and support the LGBTQIA+ community members:

·        Participate in education/training that focus on legal issues, ‘coming out’ process, and other relevant topics. More information:

o   https://www.thetrevorproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/The-Trevor-Project-National-Survey-Results-2019.pdf

·        Learn and understand the use of pronouns and chosen names. It’s important to ensure we use the pronouns and chosen names of individuals to affirm their gender identity.

·        Do not ‘Out’ people—this is a personal choice. Follow the lead of the LGBTQ+ person in how they wish to discuss their identity

·        Provide relevant resources and ways of finding Queer-friendly providers (specifically mental health providers):https://www.wpath.org/provider/search.

·        Find other LGBTQIA+ mental health statistics to understand the needs of the community.
