This workshop will identify the unique challenges LGBTQ youth face, address indicators that lead LGBTQ youth to misuse alcohol, strategies that address the specific needs of this demographic, and critical tools to affirm LGBTQ youth in your community. By working with LGBTQ youth in their early development, you have the power to support youth to engage in a community where they can embrace their identity—decreasing the statistic of alcohol misuse.

Participants will be able to understand why the LGBTQ youth population is at greater risk of alcohol misuse.
Participants will be able to make a plan when working with LGBTQ youth to affirm their specific needs.
