Struggling to be Proud and Thriving: Supporting the Well-being and Mental Health of LGBTQ+ College Students

Studies show that queer-spectrum students and trans-spectrum students reported lower levels of agreement on all measures of campus climate when compared to their heterosexual and cisgender peers. They are also at higher risk for suicide and adverse mental health outcomes. This indicates a demonstrated need among the higher education community for additional support and resources. In this webinar, we share data points about the issues and discuss recommendations focused on sexuality and gender identity to help campuses provide safe and affirming environments. We also hear from current LGBTQ campus resource professionals who will share their experiences supporting students and challenges faced as higher ed pivoted to online instruction.
