LGBTQ Youth at High Risk for Attempted Suicide

Over 40% of U.S. LGBTQ young people ages 13 to 24 seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year, according to the 2023 U.S. National Survey on the Mental Health of LGBTQ Young People by The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization focused on suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth. The survey, which took place between Sept. 1 and Dec. 12, 2022, also found that while 81% of all LGBTQ young people wanted mental health care, 56% of them were not able to get it in the past year.
