Pride Talk

2S/LGBTQIA+ communities are disproportionately impacted by suicide, but suicide prevention interventions for this population are lacking.

Pride talk is an innovative research project that aims to develop an online training to equip 2S/LGBTQIA+ individuals to be more alert to their peers who are thinking of suicide and to be able to connect them with further help. This intervention builds on the long history of peer supports within 2S/LGBTQIA+ communities and will empower 2S/LGBTQIA+ individuals to take an active role in suicide prevention and to make a difference in their community.
