Join us TODAY at 6PM for Voices of Resilience via Facebook Live with Don Carter, a Transformational Coach, Speaker, and Kindness "Enthusiactivist!" Helping human beings unlock and unleash the best of themselves into their respective worlds is a specialty of his. Working from a place of deep belief in and understanding of the goodness in the world, he does his small part to influence the coming shift in people's awareness from what's "wrong" on the outside of them to what's right IN them.

For LGBTQ+ individuals, affirmations are beneficial for development of positive self-esteem and self-acceptance. Affirming language used by the LGBTQ+ individuals and other allies help encourage that their thoughts, feelings, and desires are natural and okay.

So know that YOU BELONG and we're here for you not only during #PrideMonth but also year-round. .

We're continuing to share protective measures to help improve the mental health of our LGBTQ+ youth for #PrideMonth.
.
Picture yourself as a student. Were you part of a group that shared similar interests and beliefs as you? Remember that feeling of belonging and affirmation. These spaces are important to any young person who's forming their identity.
.
Let's do our part to make sure our LGBTQ+ youth know that they MATTER and they BELONG! If you have questions for an advocate of the LGBTQ+ community, join us for Voices of Resilience: Nick Maddock via Facebook Live today at 2:00pm!

Representation and visibility matters for the mental health of our LGBTQ youth. Positive role models demonstrate the future possibilities and help support our youth through their journey. It is our responsibility to not just elevate LGBTQ leaders and their voices, but also actively support the development of LGBTQ leaders in every community, every industry, and every facet of our daily life.

Tomorrow, we hope you'll join us for Voices of Resilience: Nick Maddock tomorrow at 2PM on Facebook Live (@resilienttoday) to hear perspectives on life, travel, and mental health from one of our favorite LGBTQ leaders.

Let's share! Tell us about a role model from the LGBTQ community that's made a positive impact on your life in the comments below. 👇🏽 #PrideMonth #YouBelong
