LGBTQI+ youth grow up with significantly more risk of marginalization, bullying, abuse, and discrimination. These threats to resilience and well-being are understood as heightened minority stress and pose serious risks to a child's physical and mental health. Keys to establishing resiliency are reviewed, including fostering family, school, and community support, which is a key factor in wellbeing. This chapter reviews these developmental issues as they apply to LGBTQI+ persons.
