Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth exist in a developmental context of emerging and shifting identities. This chapter reviews the mental health disparities experienced by LGBT youth. It examines their experiences of minority stress and considers the impact of their family and peer relationships on their identities. Also included is a discussion of affirmative cognitive–behavioral therapy (A-CBT) for LGBT youth, containing detailed clinical examples. The chapter concludes with emerging trends for evidence-based mental health practice with LGBT youth, such as a focus on resilience and the use of information and communication technologies.
