Provider Resources for working with LGBTQ Youth

The resources in the link below are provided by OUT Maine and are used in their trainings. These resources are intended to help you as you work with LGBTQ youth. Our goal is to work with our partner organizations to create a welcoming and affirming Maine community and support youth that align with a sexual minority or are questioning their gender or sexuality. https://www.outmaine.org/resources/trainingresources
