How this will help

Join the campaign for conversation. With 3 simple words – TALK TO ME – you can let someone know that you care and are willing to listen without judgment.

I am pledging to:

  • Let my friends know that I'm always available to talk.
  • Be respectful and supportive of everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
  • Listen with an open mind and without judgment.
  • Take what people say seriously.
  • Check in with friends who may need to talk.
  • Help a friend call the Trevor Lifeline if they are in crisis (1.866.488.7386)
  • Tell a person I trust if someone is considering suicide.
  • Call the Trevor Lifeline when I need support. (1.866.488.7386)


TALK TO ME is The Trevor Project's campaign for conversation. 

Here's why this matters:

• Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among young people ages 10 to 24. 
• LGB youth are 4 times more likely, and questioning youth are 3 times more likely, to attempt suicide as their straight peers.
• Nearly half of young transgender people have seriously thought about taking their lives, and one quarter report having made a suicide attempt.
• LGB youth who come from highly rejecting families are 8.4 times as likely to have attempted suicide as LGB peers who reported no or low levels of family rejection.
• Suicide attempts are nearly 2 times higher among Black and Hispanic youth than White youth.
• Each episode of LGBT victimization, such as physical or verbal harassment or abuse, increases the likelihood of self-harming behavior by 2.5 times on average.
