LGBT Teens and Stress

For lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender teens, stress is common. But it doesn’t have to be.

Better Times to Come

As tough a time as you may be having as you come to terms with your sexuality, know that life won’t always be so difficult. That’s the message that Menvielle says that teenagers need to understand.

"They are aware they are different, they are under pressure -- it's a very rough time of life," he says. "The teen years are the toughest, so hold on to the idea that things get better."
