The Trevor Project
Saving Young LGBTQ Lives.keyboard_arrow_down
In FY 2020, The Trevor Project directly served over 150,000 crisis contacts -- calls/chats/texts -- from LGBTQ youth who reached out for support.
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) young people under the age of 25.
Founded in 1998, The Trevor Project provides powerful suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs for LGBTQ youth. The organization works to save lives by giving free and confidential access to trained crisis counselors on platforms where young people spend their time. These services and programs include TrevorLifeline, the nation's only 24/7 crisis and suicide prevention lifeline for LGBTQ youth (1.866.488.7386). TrevorText, which connects LGBTQ youth to a trained counselor (Text "START" to 678-678. Standard text messaging rates apply). TrevorChat, an instant messaging service providing live help by trained volunteers (TheTrevorProject.org/Help). TrevorSpace, the world's largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth (TrevorSpace.org). Soon-to-come are integrations with social media platforms. The Trevor Project also funds research on LGBTQ suicidology, supports advocacy to protect LGBTQ rights, and educates adults who interact with youth on LGBTQ competent suicide prevention, risk detection and response.Visit the Site
Child Mind Institute
Transforming the lives of children struggling with mental health and learning disorders.keyboard_arrow_down
Of the 74.5 million children in the United States, an estimated 17.1 million have or have had a mental health disorder — more than the number of children with cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined.
The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders.
Half of all mental illness occurs before the age of 14, and 75 percent by the age of 24. In spite of the magnitude of the problem, lack of awareness and entrenched stigma keep the majority of these young people from getting help. Children and adolescents struggling with these disorders are at risk for academic failure, substance abuse and a clash with the juvenile justice system — all of which come at a tremendous cost to them, their families and the community.Visit the Site
Child Mind Institute works every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most. In order to create a brighter future for our children, and they make three commitments:
-Give children and adolescents access to the best, most effective clinical care when and where they need it most.
-Advance the science of the developing brain to improve diagnosis and treatment.
-Provide useful, accurate information that empowers families and communities to get help.
