Objective of the Project

The project focuses on the prevention of violence and bulling of young LGBT people, prevention of suicidal attempts, drug abuse and depression of these people. A special attention will be paid to LGBT people belonging to the Roma minority in the Czech Republic. The project’s goal is to create a web portal, whose functions will consist of: provision of reliable information about coming-out, questions connected to sexual orientation and bullying and violence. The second function of the portal will be counselling. Along with the youth (Roma and transgender) organizations aiming at the LGBT community we will provide a peer to peer counselling and a crisis intervention for the portal clients. The project will also include working with specialists in the field of psychology, psychotherapy and social work. We will train 150 specialists and create a list of those working with LGBT people or are sensible of their problems. Through a nation-wide campaign we wish to draw attention to the fact that homophobic behaviour, conscious or not, can lead as far as to a suicide of the LGBT person.
