Every year, thousands of LGBT+ teens come out to teachers, counselors, pediatricians and government agency officials. Many of these youth live in religiously conservative families. The Bridge Home trains secular care providers how to bridge the belief gap to maximize family connectedness. Low family connectedness is a leading risk factor for gay teen suicide. Parents with a conservative religious faith CAN radically love and care for their LGBT+ child. Our respect for both parents and teens is crucial. A message that seems to defend a teen may actually lower family bonds and increase suicidal inclination. Our language is key. Train your team today!
