The Family Acceptance Project

The Family Acceptance Project™ is a research, intervention, education and policy initiative that works to prevent health and mental health risks for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) children and youth, including suicide, homelessness and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) – in the context of their families. They use a research-based, culturally grounded approach to help ethnically, socially and religiously diverse families to support their LGBT children.

Their team has been putting research into practice by developing an evidence-based family model of wellness, prevention and care to strengthen families and promote positive development and healthy futures for LGBT children and youth. They provide training and consultation on our family-based prevention and intervention approach across the United States and in other countries.

You can download and share their publications, training, and resource materials such as the LDS version of the “Supportive Families, Healthy Children” pamphlet.
