NEW YORK — A study released by the Trevor Project last week found that black LGBTQ youth suffer from depression and suicide at similar rates to other LGBTQ youth, but are less likely to receive help.
The study said that while 47% of LGBTQ youth overall reported receiving psychological or emotional counseling from a professional in the past year, only 39% of black LGBTQ youth reported having done so. Among those who seriously considered suicide, only half of black LGBTQ youth received psychological or emotional counseling compared to three out of five LGBTQ youth overall.
