This may not be a surprise, but this study says that Teen Suicide Attempts Tied to Social Environment . "A negative social environment may increase risk for suicide attempts by lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) teenagers.

"A new study shows the risk of suicide attempts among LGB teens is 20% higher in communities that are less supportive of homosexuality than in supportive social environments."

How do you think we can better support our LGBT teens?
