Suicide Prevention

Anyone can feel suicidal. Many suicidal people may be afraid to talk about what they are feeling because of how others might react.

According to the National Center for Transgender Equality 2015 U.S. Trans Survey, 40% of trans individuals have attempted suicide at some point in their life, compared to 4.6% in the U.S. population.

Here are a few resources you can share with at-risk people in the trans community.
