This is a guide for providing health and mental health care to lesbian and gay youth and young adults. Although it focuses on adolescents, the information is relevant for any age group. In addition to specific guidelines for care and for approaching such sensitive topics as sexual behaviour, substance abuse and suicide, the book includes a comprehensive review of literature and up-to-date information for providers, researchers, educators and general readers. This book also includes guidelines (clinical care protocols) on primary care, mental health care, HIV medical and psychosocial care for lesbian and gay youth, and HIV counselling and testing for adolescents. There is extensive discussion of the social and health effects of stigmatized identity in the context of adolescent development. This book should be a useful resource for training health and mental health providers, and for enabling parents and advocates to assist in monitoring and ensuring quality care for a group of adolescents that has previously been neglected.
