                                                  While being part of a gang is dangerous, escaping from a gang family may be even more so.

While getting out of gang life isn’t easy, it is possible with persistence, support and the right resources.

                                                      Bullying can have lasting negative effects on LGBTQ+ youth. It can cause anxiety and depression, relationship problems, low self-esteem, substance use and even thoughts of suicide. Young people who are being bullied should seek out adult allies who are safe and confident. Adults who display rainbows in their offices, wear pins to show their support, or have Safe Zone stickers are likely good places to turn.
                                                      • Gambling addiction recovery

Sometimes they’ve had an early experience with a frequent gambler. Other times, financial necessity causes them to look for money anywhere they can. No matter how the gambling behaviors start, they often stem from a deeper issue that can be addressed through counseling and support.
