The Institute and the Philadelphia Coalition for Queer Justice and Intersectional Equity will host The New Normal: LGBTQ+ Youth Living Through COVID-19, a two-day virtual symposium dedicated to addressing the challenges LGBTQ+ youth are facing during this pandemic.
For many young people, adjusting to this “New Normal” has increased their stress and anxiety levels, especially for LGBTQ+ youth who are already at a greater risk for suicide and depression. Research has shown that many LGBTQ+ young people struggle with loneliness and isolation due to limited access to affirming mental health services and community programs.
This virtual experience provides participants access to forward-thinking exchanges and panel discussions with child welfare workers, medical professionals, prevention workers, mentors, and executives from a variety of disciplines.
