Saving young lives

The Trevor Project.


What We Do

The Trevor Project provides crisis and suicide intervention for LGBTQ+ youth. We offer free phone and instant messaging crisis services. Along with our intervention assistance, we offer suicide prevention training, safe social networking services for LGBTQ+ youth, and local volunteering groups. 


Mission Statement

"The mission of The Trevor Project is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people. The organization works to fulfill this mission through four strategies:

1. Provide crisis counseling to LGBTQ young people thinking of suicide.

2. Offer resources, supportive counseling and a sense of community to LGBTQ young people to reduce the risk that they become suicidal.

3. Educate young people and adults who interact with young people on LGTBQ-competent suicide prevention, risk detection and response.

4. Advocate for laws and policies that will reduce suicide among LGBTQ young people."


Our History

James LecesnePeggy Rajski, and Randy Stone, the creators of the Academy Award winning short film trevor, the story of a young gay who attempts to take his life because of homophobia, realized there were no services to help people like Trevor in the real world. So in 1998, the Trevor project became the first nationwide suicide prevention hotline for LGBTQ+ youth.
