Last month, over 500 community members—who directly influence our young people everyday—participated in YES Institute’s education. Participants’ comments underscore the importance of taking proactive steps to ensure environments are safe and supportive for all youth and families.
“I am tired of tripping over my words with gay and transgender patients. Now I feel much more capable to relate to all my patients with respect.” – Physician, Citrus Health Network
“I’ve been trying to be the ‘ideal guy,’ but that’s impossible. Maybe now I can just be natural, and stop bullying others.” – Student, Hialeah Gardens High School
“Now I can better handle situations with gay and trans youth who might be afraid or isolated.” – Case Manager, Juvenile Assessment Center
