LGBTQ+ Resources

The LGBTQ+ community is diverse and made up of different experiences, identities, and challenges. However, members of the community are disproportionately at-risk for suicide and other mental health struggles. This section has information and resources for yourself and to help support loved ones who identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.



How To Take Care Of Yourself

If you're struggling, you can call or chat with the Lifeline. We're available 24/7 and confidential. There are crisis counselors available to listen and support you without judgment.

  • Know you are not alone. In addition to the Lifeline, there are resources at the bottom of this page where you can connect with other members of the LGBTQ+ community. You can also check out the stories of hope and recovery below in the resources section to learn how some LGBTQ+ people have coped during hard times.

  • Build a support network. Develop a support network in your life that will help keep you safe and that you can lean on if you feel depressed or suicidal.

  • Talk to someone. Don’t keep thoughts of suicide to yourself. Lean on your support network, find a therapist or a support group, or get in touch with the Lifeline.

  • Make a safety plan. Have a step-by-step plan ready for if/when you feel depressed, suicidal, or in crisis, so you can start at step one and continue through the steps until you feel safe.
