The mission of The Trevor Project is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people. The organization works to fulfill this mission through four strategies:
- Provide crisis counseling to LGBTQ young people thinking of suicide.
- Offer resources, supportive counseling and a sense of community to LGBTQ young people to reduce the risk that they become suicidal.
- Educate young people and adults who interact with young people on LGTBQ-competent suicide prevention, risk detection and response.
- Advocate for laws and policies that will reduce suicide among LGBTQ young people.
