Supporting LGBTQ Youth Mental Health On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and last week a nationwide survey of the LGBTQ community revealed concerning numbers. A warning to our listeners, this story contains discussions of self-harm and suicide. Chris Schulz brings us this story.

Also, in this show, the Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, is a public radio program that reports on environmental issues in the region. We listen to their latest story about phosphorus in our water and on agricultural fields.

West Virginia Morning is a production of West Virginia Public Broadcasting which is solely responsible for its content.

Support for our news bureaus comes from Concord University and Shepherd University.

Caroline MacGregor is our assistant news director and produced this episode.
