RESOURCES FOR YOUTH AND PARENTSLAYSS would love to put itself out of a job! To that end, we have put together this page of resources in the hopes that some of the problems we see facing youth every day can be prevented. We hope that these resources can be of some help; if you know of others we ought to include (or would just like to comment), please let us know.
Resources for Parents
Our Executive Director, Jason Wittman, MPS, also coaches parents of teens. His parenting website is full of useful information for parents. He, also, hosts a free, monthly tele-roundtable discussion for parents of teens. Information on how you can join that on-going discussion is available on his website.
Resources for Parents of Gay Youth
Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays (PFLAG) is a national non-profit organization with over 200,000 members and supporters and over 500 affiliates in the United States. This vast grassroots network is cultivated, resourced and serviced by the PFLAG national office, located in Washington, D.C., the national Board of Directors and 13 Regional Directors.
Resources for Youth
We, at L.A. Youth Supportive Services is always here for you when you need us. You can contact us 24/7 either by phone or email. Although L.A. stands for Los Angeles, CA, we are open to assisting teens and young adults regardless of where you live. You need not be in crisis to call. As a matter of fact, if you start having on-going conversations with us, you might just never have a crisis. How do you contact us? (You might ask.) Just click Here.
If you're gay and you need to talk to an adult about your problems, try your local PFLAG chapter. Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays is an organization designed to support families with gay members, but youth are welcome in most chapters too. There are lots of warm, loving adults there who'd love to help you out.
Please write to Jason Wittman, the Executive Director with your comments and questions.
