Is The Trevor Project only for the LGBTQ community?
Letter submitted by:
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth. We have several programs: the Trevor Lifeline, TrevorChat and AskTrevor (this!) as well as in-school workshops. We also offer an online community, Trevorspace for LGBTQ youth ages 13-24. That said, we often get questions from adults as well as questions not relating to suicide. Sometimes teachers or parents contact us wanting to know how they can help LGBTQ youth.
If what you are asking is if someone who is not LGBTQ can still call the Trevor Lifeline or ask a question here, that should be fine. We have the most experience providing resources for LGBTQ youth, so perhaps a different organization might be better equipped to handle other types of issues. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) Their website is: http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ and they also have an online chat.
Hope that answered your question!
