Detail

These toolkits are a collaboration between the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and Public Health England (PHE).

They are primarily for nurses who work with children and young people, whether in community or hospital settings, including:

  • school nurses
  • practice nurses
  • accident and emergency nurses

These toolkits aim to:

  • develop skills and knowledge and recognise the wider context of mental health in relation to LGBT sexual orientation and identity.
  • provide a general outline for health professionals looking to increase their skills and knowledge around suicide prevention strategies with LGBT young people
