Editorial Reviews

Review

"An amazing work ... clearly addresses both the heart and the head of a very salient issue for professionals and families alike. This book provides a solid foundation for systems, communities, and families to come together to support LGBT youth." --Melanie Funchess, Director of Community Engagement, Mental Health Association, Better Days Ahead Family Support Network, Rochester, NY

"Offers accessible yet comprehensive tools for ensuring that LGBT youth receive effective services across many different systems of care. The cultural and linguistic framework provides a unique and useful lens through which providers can evaluate and enhance their own programming. It is a 'must read' for anyone interested in effectively meeting the needs of LGBT youth." --Robin P. McHaelen, Executive Director, True Colors, Inc.
