Resource for Helping Families Support LGBT Children

The Center for Mental Health Services and Georgetown University’s National Center for Cultural Competence have released a practice brief that reports on some of the research findings from the Family Acceptance Project™ conducted by Dr. Caitlin Ryan and her research team at San Francisco State University.

This practice brief entitled Helping Families Support Their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Children was developed for families, caretakers, advocates, and providers to:

- Provide basic information to help families support their lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) children

- Share some of the critical new research from the Family Acceptance ProjectTM(FAP) at San Francisco State University. This important new research shows that families have a major impact on their LGBT children’s health, mental health, and well-being

- Give families and LGBT youth hope that ethnically, religiously, and socially diverse families, parents, and caregivers can become more supportive of their LGBT children
