Suicide is worryingly prevalent among young people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender. Yet, we see very few young people from that community at Signpost. With support from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service’s Innovation Fund and in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council’s Youth Connexions team, an LGBT-specialist counsellor from Signpost is running a discussion group on the difficulties of coming out, homophobia and not being accepted at 6pm on Tuesdays at the XC Centre in Hemel Hempstead in March. Members of the group can then go on to receive one-to-one counselling. Get in touch if you would like to join the group.
