Caring for LGBTQ Youth in Clinical Settings

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth (12-24 years) must navigate the typical challenges of adolescence while also managing the social stigma associated with their emerging sexual and gender minority identities. As a result, many LGBT youth are at higher risk for certain behavioral and emotional issues, homelessness, as well as bullying and other forms of victimization.
