Event description

Description

Research shows that LGBT+ young people are at much higher risk of suicide and self-harm compared to heterosexual and cisgender young people. LGBT+ youth rates of suicide attempts can be between four and seven times those of their heterosexual and cisgender peers.

This half day participatory training session will:

  • Present facts and statistics relating to LGBT+ young people, suicide, self-harm and mental illness
  • Discuss the context within which LGBT+ young people live their lives
  • Address how to build LGBT+ young people’s resilience, self-esteem and emotional well-being
  • Discuss how to support LGBT+ young people within schools and youth settings
  • Address how to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools and youth settings, and how to provide a positive environment for LGBT+ pupils
  • Present SAYiT services and support

You can either book on one of the sessions advertised on the Overview of Training Sheet at the back of this booklet, or if you would like a trainer to deliver a session to staff within school, please contact Liz Wilson at SAYiT.
