Trevor Lifeguard Workshop for Suicide Prevention in LGBTQ Youth

Trevor Lifeguard Workshop is a 1-hour interactive workshop for high school and college-age youth that describes the mental health, suicide, and self-care resources provided by The Trevor Project. There are two versions of the workshop: one for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and one for general youth audiences. Workshops are given by volunteer facilitators who have completed the 2-day Trevor Lifeguard Workshop training for trainers. The workshop guides youth and young adults in a conversation about how to recognize the warning signs of suicide and how to respond in a way that will keep their peers safe. It is available at no charge from The Trevor Project.
