Countless lives are saved with each suicide prevention workshop we’re able to fund. While the majority of our suicide prevention workshops are for LGBTQ+ college-age students, this one was the first of its kind. Specifically for parents, caregivers, and teachers of LGBTQ+ teens, our goal was to provide them with the education, resources, and support they need to become powerful suicide preventionists in their own homes and classrooms.
In our latest workshop for parents of LGBTQ youth, we asked the same set of questions before and after the workshop was presented.
The results blew us away.
With each presentation, we are not only offering space and training that exists nowhere else, we are also equipping parents with the very real vocabulary, skills, and situational practice to intervene when their kids need it most.
We are still working to fund our next workshop. If you’d like to participate or help us fund the next round of ALP for parents, please visit our Workshop donation page.
We’re inching closer to our goal but it’ll take all of us to make a wave in the ocean.
We hope to host the next Pride and Joy Parents workshop in February 2022 with a focus on LGBTQ+ Youth & Self-Harm. How to spot it, how to talk about it, how to find help, and how to move forward with your teen. To make sure you're notified of our next Pride and Joy Parents workshop, please sign up today!
