LGBT Bullying

A small teaser for this month’s Articles of Note: The Family Acceptance Project at San Francisco State University is “the only community research, intervention, education and policy initiative that works to decrease major health and related risks for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth, such as suicide, substance abuse, HIV and homelessness – in the context of their families.” They have a new study, published this month in the Journal of School Health, that looks at the long-term healthcare implications of bullying in the LGBT community. We have so little data on the impact of bullying over time, this provides a fantastic look at what it means for the physical, mental and sexual health of these patients.

Stay tuned for the full Articles of Note later in the week.
