As part of the It Gets Better campaign to prevent youth suicide – especially due to bullying – the staff of the Health Collective have created an It Gets Better video and made it available via YouTube.
Suicide disproportionately affects LGBT youth. If you are considering harming yourself or know of someone who may take their own life, there are resources available to help!
If you are unsure if someone is in crisis – please call 911.
It’s better to call in a “false alarm” than see someone make the ultimate mistake.

Please note that the organizations above are not affiliated with the It Gets Better Project, or the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective, but we feel they are great resources and are provided as information only.
We hope our video – and the thousands of others out there – help even one child – gay, straight, bi, trans, queer, questioning, allied, pansexual, or unsure – that life is WORTH living.
