Synopsis: Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning (GLBTQ) youth frequently do not receive appropriate and culturally-competent mental health interventions, partly due to the unavailability of useful materials and practice guides for providers. This presentation describes interview data results collected from GLBTQ youth and systems of care program directors with the purpose of developing useful and appropriate materials to address the needs of GLBTQ youth in systems of care. GLBTQ youth were interviewed using detailed protocols emphasizing issues associated with stigmatization, mental health service experiences, useful interventions, and related issues. Implications of this research activity for future research and practice interventions with sexual minority youth are also provided.
