A mental health crisis faces American teens right now—and it is one we can solve. Hundreds of thousands of gay teens face depression, fear, rejection, persecution, and isolation—usually alone. Homophobia and discrimination are at the heart of their pain. In Youth in Crisis: What Everyone Should Know About Growing Up Gay, Mitchell Gold asked 40 gay Americans to share their very personal answers to difficult questions: What is it like to be called an abomination by your religious leaders? To live in fear of losing your family's love? To be afraid to go to school because of bullying? Gold calls this a silent epidemic, and emphasizes how the crisis can be solved, with compassion and fair-mindedness–and especially by getting those whose words and deeds cause harm to stop. The book has been helpful to many in "starting a conversation" and can guide you in becoming better able to help LGBT kids in your family, congregation, or classroom. Contributors include designer Nate Berkus, Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, and actor Richard Chamberlain, as well as Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams.
