Abstract

Today's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth come out at younger ages. There has been a dramatic rise in public support for LGBT issues, so why are LGBT youth still at high risk of impaired mental health? We give an overview of the current context for LGBT youth, accompanied by a summary of current mental health science for LGBT youth. Over the past decade, research has identified mental health risk and protective factors, which lead to promising pathways for prevention, intervention, and treatment. Legal and policy achievements have set the stage for change in services and practise that could improve mental health for LGBT youth. Implications for clinical care are addressed, and significant areas are defined for new research and practise.
