I’m taking some free self help lesssons from https://thiswayup.org.au/ but I feel this could be better if this guidance was geared towad LGBT issues because this self help lesson is generally for depressed, sad, and worried people.
It was great of you to write in to Ask Trevor. I can understand wanting to have a self help course that is more dedicated to the issues that you may be facing. I am not familiar with thiswayup.org but took a few minutes to look at their information. It seems that they are dedicated to cognitive behavior therapy, or helping you change the way that you think about things, with a focus on depression.
Depression can be difficult to deal with. Feeling lonely or isolated from your friends, not enjoying things that you used to enjoy, and feeling hopeless, can all be signs of depression. There are options for treatment of depression such as therapy with a mental health professional. If you can find someone that you trust to talk to, such as a school counselor or an adult that you can trust, they may be able to help you find some resources in your area. At http://us.reachout.com/facts/romance-sexuality-and-pregnancy/glbt you can find some great information realted to Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgendered issues by clicking on the selections, and from the top left of the screen you can select a dropdown menu that has more information on depression and related issues.
While I don’t know of any specific self help courses or lessons specifically geared toward the LGBT community, The Trevor Project is a great place to start. Depending on your age, you may be able to join Trevor Space http://www.trevorspace.org/, a social site dedicated to youth ages 13-24. You may make connections with people who are dealing with the same issues that you are dealing with. Also, on Mondays and Fridays, http://www.thetrevorproject.org/chat is available for a live chat with a volunteer. Check the times on the web site to make sure you are able to access from your location at the right time. Also feel free to write back to Ask Trevor at any time, we are here to help in any way that we can. Best of luck and big hugs to you.
