Stigma affects our LGBTQ+ communities in ways that we may not fully understand. Explore the intersection of mental health challenges and LBGTQ+ identities in youth. Examine the impacts of holding marginalized gender and sexual identities on mental health outcomes. Learn how we can support the mental health of LGBTQ+ young people in our communities.

This Public Education forum is hosted by Lizzy Appleby at LCSW.  LCSW oversees Youth Services’ Pride Youth Program, which provides social, support, and leadership programming to more than 250 LGBTQ+ youth and their families across Chicago’s northern suburbs. Lizzy’s passion is to work with youth and adults to create a more welcoming, inclusive, and kind world.
