August 30, 2022 by NBCC Government Affairs

The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, has released a new report exploring The Mental Health and Well-Being of Multiracial LGBTQ YouthThe report shows that a unique convergence of stressors experienced by young people with a multiracial identity and an LGBTQ identity may make them more susceptible to negative experiences, and as a result, poorer mental health and well-being. 

The report uses data from a national sample of over 4,700 multiracial LGBTQ youth ages 13–24 who participated in The Trevor Project’s 2022 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health. It recommends that all stakeholders must do more to examine and dismantle systematic racism and to prioritize the well-being of multiracial LGBTQ youth to inform best practices for working with this population and improve outcomes.
