Abstract (Summary)

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth continue to struggle with challenges relating to their sexual identities and the coming out process. LGBT youth are far more likely than heterosexual youth to experience negative outcomes relating to their family and social supports, as well as physical and emotional health. The purpose of this project was to identify the specific needs of LGBT youth and write a grant to fund a psychoeducational support program designed to increase the support networks, improve self-esteem, increase communication skills, decrease physical and emotional health disparities between LGBT and non-LGBT youth, and promote a positive and healthy transition during the coming out process of LGBT youth in Ventura County.

The host agency for the grant is Rainbow Umbrella. The Arcus Foundation was selected as the funder for this grant. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not requirements for successful completion of this project.
