Welcome to LGBTQ Health and Advocacy
In this module, we feature a two-part recorded training conducted by Robert Sturm, MA, Executive Director of the New Mexico Community AIDS Partnership. Participants can learn about health disparities affecting sexual and gender minorities and practical ways to increase health equity. CEUs are available.
Following the training is a resource section that includes educational films created by the New Mexico Communities of Care. The first video explores the challenges our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, etc. (LGBTQ+) young people face and how adults can be supportive allies. The second delves into ways organizations can create a more supportive, inclusive, and welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ youth and families.
This training is designed to be inclusive of staff in medical, public health and mental/behavioral health settings.
