Ayriana Canady started this petition to National Suicide Prevention and

The goal of this petition is to raise awareness to families who have young LGBT children within the family who may be struggling with bullying not only in the outside world but at home as well. There have been too many cases of childhood LGBT suicide this past year and there needs to be more action taken to prevent these tragedies. It all starts within the home, talk to your kids about their sexuality and let them know that is okay to come to talk to you about how they are feeling. Schools, teachers and counselors need to speak up when they witness bullying and encourage children to open up. Provide a safe space for them to come talk to you if they are having issues and most importantly, provide resources that can help them. All it takes is one listener to prevent suicide, just one person to care. These children are taking their lives at such a young age and it can be prevented if we all took time out of our day to care.
