    LGBTQ2S+ young people are vulnerable. Studies show that they are overrepresented in the youth homeless population and have higher rates of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, self-harm, suicide and contracting sexually transmitted diseases. The Office of Child and Youth Advocate released a Special Report on LGBTQ2S+ young people involved with child intervention and youth justice systems. Through listening to young people and stakeholders we learned about what is working and what can be done better. This presentation will outline the findings from this report.
