Family Acceptance Project

Welcoming your child’s LGBTQ friends is one of more than 50 ways that parents and caregivers can reduce risk and increase well-being for LGBTQ youth.

Research from the Family Acceptance Project shows that families play a critical role in contributing to serious health risks and promoting well-being for LGBTQ young people.

Learn about how family behaviors affect your LGBTQ child’s health risks and ways to reduce risk and increase support. Family rejecting behaviors contribute to serious health risks, including suicidal behavior and drug use, while accepting behaviors help protect against risk and promote well-being.
