RESOURCES

Life has dealt me some serious challenges that I imagine many of you share — depression and suicidal thoughts, self acceptance of orientation or gender identity, sexual abuse, and religious wounds. I hope these resources help you. You are not alone.

SUICIDE HOTLINES

LGBTQ+ SUPPORT

  • DigintyUSA works for respect and justice for LGBTQ+ people in the Catholic Church and the world through education, advocacy, and support.

  • PFLAG is the largest organization for LGBTQ+ people, their parents and families, and allies. Find a chapter.

  • Trans Lifeline's Hotline (877-565-8860) is a peer support service run by trans people for trans and questioning callers.

  • LGBT National Help Center has hotlines for people of all ages and provides free and confidential peer support and local resources.

  • Find an LGBTQ+ center.

  • Q Chat Space online discussion groups for LGBTQ+ teens.

  • It Gets Better Project shares inspiring stories of LGBTQ+ people just like you and provides youth support services. 

CLERGY IN CRISIS

  • The Southdown Institute gave me back my life and health when I left the priesthood. If you are a religious leader struggling with depression, anxiety, addictions, burnout, or other psychological stress, call them. Consultations are free and confidential. They will listen and offer you clarity and or direction.

SEXUAL ABUSE

FOR NONBELIEVERS

 

DON'T GIVE UP

There is life beyond the trauma.
