Youth who identify as LGBTQ are at increased risk for suicide. New research from the 2022 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health reveals that half (50%) of all LGBTQ teens aged 13-17 seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year, and 18% actually made a suicide attempt. That’s more than twice the rate of suicide attempts among all U.S. teens. This heightened risk highlights the need for heightened prevention efforts.
