by Baer, Jeffrey, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 56; 1493087
Abstract (Summary)

Suicide currently ranks as the third leading cause of death among youth in the United States. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth are 4 times more likely than heterosexual youth to attempt suicide. LGBTQ youth often face a hostile culture and climate in their schools, which contributes to increased suicidality, and research has indicated that school staff do not receive adequate training on meeting the needs of LGBTQ students. The purpose of this grant proposal is to help The Trevor Project secure funding to provide training to the Los Angeles County School Police Department regarding crisis intervention and suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth. The grant writer selected The Arcus Foundation as a funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not requirements for successful completion of this project.
