Limited Capacity filling up

Depression and suicide are real issues for the LGBTQ youth in our community in Utah. Research shows that affirming and loving families help combat the isolation and loneliness that can come from being a sexual or gender minority. In our session, we share our journey of creating Encircle: LGBTQ Family & Youth Resource Center as we strive to bring together the family and community to help LGBTQ youth thrive. Our hope is that better conversations in homes will result in better conversations back in neighborhoods, schools and churches—making Utah more safe and welcoming.
