These toolkits are a collaboration between the Royal College of Nursing and Public Health England

They are primarily for nurses who work with children and young people, whether in community or hospital settings, including:

  • practice nurses

These toolkits aim to:

  • develop skills and knowledge and recognise the wider context of mental health in relation to LGBT sexual orientation and identity.
  • provide a general outline for health professionals looking to increase their skills and knowledge around suicide prevention strategies with LGBT young people
