lgbtqOn Thursday, December 17th, from 5-7pm, Nor Cal Mental Health America will host an LGBTQ+ Youth Focus Group. They will be looking for  youth who are: LGBTQ+ identified, between the ages of 13-21 years, and live, go to school or work in the areas of Lemon Hill, Stockton Blvd, and Oak Park. The exact location of the meeting will be given once participants have registered but will be in the area of Hiram Johnson High School. All youth participants will receive a $25 gift card and will be provided with dinner as well.

The focus group is being held to determine what issues are effecting this particular community, the youth involved in it, and possible solutions that can be formed. LGBT youth seem to face many struggles and this focus group will work to combat them.
