Evolve Treatment Centers
How to Support LGBTQ+ Youth and Their Mental Health
Monthly Community Workshops for Parents and Families
Presenter, Joseph Remaley, LCSW, will discuss the different identities that fall under LGBTQ+ during this webinar and why the labels and words teens and parents use around gender, sexuality, and gender identity are incredibly important. Joseph will also talk about the associated increased risk of mental health for LGBTQ+ teens. Finally, Joseph will offer suggestions for what parents can do to support teens questioning their identity and sexuality, aid in teens as they come out, and how to be an LGBTQ+ ally.
This workshop is free and open to the community. Registration required. If you cannot attend live, you can still sign up and Evolve Treatment Centers will send out a recording of the workshop after the event.
