This Toolkit has been developed to assist individuals, community-based organizations, providers, healthcare staff, educators, and others that see the value of incorporating key safer space components into their organizations so that young people survive and thrive. This Toolkit does not embrace a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, it provides actionable advice on implementing practices, programs, and policies that affirm LGBTQ youth. Furthermore, this Toolkit highlights challenges faced by LGBTQ youth, offers insight on how they thrive, and enhances the awareness among healthcare staff, educators, and additional youth-serving professionals about the existing disparities in order to provide more comprehensive, competent, evidence-based care and support to this community.
