A new report revealed that the amount of LGBTQ+ youth experiencing suicidal thoughts has increased. For the last 24 years, The Trevor Project has established itself as one of the top suicide prevention networks for LGBTQ+ people.

Alongside its numerous projects – like Trevor Lifeline and Trevor Text – the organisation has also committed itself to release groundbreaking research regarding queer individuals and their mental health.

In a recent report from the organisation, the researchers found that 45% of LGBTQ youth have “seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year.” The new findings also revealed that “1 in 5 transgender and nonbinary youth” had attempted suicide – with higher rates reported for people of colour. “Across race and ethnicity, Native/Indigenous LGBTQ youth reported the highest rates of seriously considering and attempting suicide, symptoms of depression and anxiety,” the report said.
