The Trevor Project’s Lifeguard Workshop Program uses a structured, age-appropriate curriculum with trained facilitators to address topics including:
· Examining the impact of language and actions on the experiences and mental health of young LGBTQ people;
· Recognizing the warning signs of depression and suicide among young people and their peers;
· Responding to those warning signs in a way that keeps all young people safe.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide is the third leading cause of death for people ages 15 to 24 accounting for more than 12% of the deaths in that age range every year.
