12 PM - How to Spot Mental Health Concerns in LGBTQ+ Youth

Safe Space NOVA Executive Director, Jordan L. Costen-Sumpter and Denisha Johnson, LCSW

Mental health concerns plague the LGBTQ+ community at an exceedingly high rate. Even worse, symptoms - the early signs that there are mental health concerns - are overlooked, ignored, or misdiagnosed. The purpose of this training is to provide parents and caretakers with signs of mental health concerns so that they are better equipped to identify them in children and provide helpful resources.

2 PM - Helpful Hints for the Coming Out Process - Guidance for Families, Parents/Caregivers, and Service Providers

Safe Space NOVA Executive Director, Jordan L. Costen-Sumpter 


The coming out process of understanding and accepting a sexual orientation and/or gender identity can be difficult with the response of close family members and friends playing a huge role. With this training parents and caretakers will be provided with the information and resources needed to properly navigate the process.
