Resources For Families
A practitioner's resource guide: Helping families to support their LGBT children
US Department of Health and Human Services
Earlier ages of coming out coupled with research showing the critical role of family acceptance in LGBTQ youths’ health and development point to the need for practitioners to actively engage and work with families of LGBTQ children and adolescents. This resource guide was developed to help practitioners who work in a wide range of settings to understand the critical role of family acceptance (and rejection) in contributing to the health and well-being of youth who identify as LGBTQ.
