e-Connections Post

SCUSD’s Connect Center staffers Nichole Wofford and Emily Herr presented to students at Sacramento State University recently on the psychological and social development of LGBTQ youth.

This presentation was made in two Human Sexuality classes, which offered students an opportunity to learn about the many challenges these young people face.

Topics that were addressed included: Helping students navigate the coming out process; addressing their increased risk for mental health and substance abuse issues; and dealing with bullying.

This presentation is one of several trainings that are available for district schools and staff who are interested in learning more about the unique needs of this population.
