New study reveals distressing rates of attempted suicide among transgender adolescents

A new study just released from the American Academy of Pediatrics that documents the distressing levels of attempted suicide among transgender youth. The study found the highest rates of attempted suicide among transgender boys and non-binary youth.

'These harrowing statistics lay bare the urgency of building welcoming and safe communities for LGBTQ young people, particularly for transgender youth,' said Ellen Kahn, the HRC Foundation's Director of Children, Youth and Families Program. 'The distressing reality reflected in this study is preventable, and our nation's schools, political leaders and communities can take concrete steps to combat this epidemic. HRC will continue to work with schools, faith communities, health care facilities, policy-makers and families to ensure that LGBTQ youth are able to live full, healthy lives.

Earlier this year, HRC released its 2018 LGBTQ Youth Report, which detailed similarly alarming experiences, but also significant perseverance among LGBTQ young people in the face of significant challenges.
