Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
The mission of The Trevor Project is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning young people. The organization works to fulfill this mission through four strategies:
- Provide crisis counseling to LGBTQ young people thinking of suicide.
- Offer resources, supportive counseling and a sense of community to LGBTQ young people to reduce the risk that they become suicidal.
- Educate young people and adults who interact with young people on LGBTQ-competent suicide prevention, risk detection and response.
- Advocate for laws and policies that will reduce suicide among LGBTQ young people.
