Improving mental health and wellbeing outcomes for LGBT children and young people

Stonewall, in partnership with YoungMinds, has developed a Train the Trainer course for local authority officers, and those who provide services that support children and young people, on improving mental health and wellbeing outcomes for LGBT children and young people.

This course is designed to help you as a service provider to develop your knowledge, tools and confidence to better support LGBT children and young people's mental health and wellbeing, as well as upskill you with practical techniques to deliver elements of the training course to your colleagues.

Course objectives

  • To identify what we mean by mental health
  • To discuss your thoughts, attitudes and assumptions around mental health and LGBT children and young people including those with specific intersectional identities (BAME, SEND or children in care)
  • To identify your role in keeping LGBT children and young people safe, free from stigma and discrimination
  • To consider how LGBT inclusive practice and resilience can be embedded culturally across services
  • To explore the importance of relationships and what LGBT children and young people tell us that works to help support their mental health and build their resilience
  • To explore the importance of looking after yourselves and your colleagues
  • To provide you with tools and techniques to deliver elements of this training to your colleague

70% of lesbian, gay and bi young people who are not trans have thought about taking their own life
