With nearly 5 million LGBTQ youth, and only 1 in 3 homes that are affirming (Trevor Project, 2021), there is a critical need to understand the relationship between accepting behaviors and positive mental health, and healthier outcomes for LGBTQ children and adolescents.  

Children and adolescents with high levels of acceptance:
• are 3x less likely to think about suicide 
• have higher self-esteem 
• are less likely to be depressed

EDUCATION = BETTER OUtCOMES

When parents and caring adults become more informed about their LGBTQ child’s journey, they become empowered to become the best possible advocates for their children. Parachute courses increase general understanding of LGBTQ issues, increase affirming behaviors among parents and caring adults, and improve the environment for LGBTQ people everywhere.
