Queens College DOES NOT tolerate homophobic bullying, or bullying of any kind. The tragic rash of suicides nationwide by gay youth who have been bullied is a call to action to all of us to make sure that this kind of conduct ends. Incidents like this are disturbing to all of us. The following campus offices may be helpful in addressing issues related to bullying:

The Counseling and Resource Center 718-997-5420

The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs 718-997-5500

The Health Service Center 718-997-2760

Student Life 718-997-3970

Student Development 718-997-3960

The Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding 718-997-5293

Public Safety 718-997-5912

Additionally, you may contact:

The following websites offer information that may also be helpful. Their contents include video testimonials from prominent individuals—such as President Barack Obama—who have experienced and overcome bullying in their own lives. Some of the sites offer resources for students who may be experiencing depression for any reason. This collection is by no means exhaustive, and inclusion here does not represent official endorsement by Queens College.

The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach—if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone—and it WILL get better.

The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources, including a nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community, and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive, and positive environment for everyone.

Love is Louder was started by actress Brittany Snow, the Jed Foundation, and MTV to build on the outpouring of support online after the lives of multiple teenagers were lost to suicide in September 2010. This movement strives to amplify the momentum of other inspiring online campaigns and invite anyone who has felt mistreated, misunderstood, or isolated into the conversation to help raise the volume around a critical message—that love and support are more powerful than the external and internal voices that bring us down, cause us pain, and make us feel hopeless.

Begun in fall of 2010 as a response to the widely publicized bullying, torture, and suicides affecting the LGBTQ community, Strength Through Community offers a specifically Jewish message that is positive, sincere, and LGBTQ affirming.

College and the transition to adulthood is a time of infinite possibilities. But for students struggling with unaddressed mental health problems, those possibilities fade. As the nation’s leading organization working to reduce emotional distress and prevent suicide among college students, the Jed Foundation is protecting the mental health of students across the country.

ULifeline is an ANONYMOUS online resource where you can learn more about emotional health and ways to help yourself or a friend if you are struggling with your thoughts or feelings. The site includes an anonymous mental health self-assessment screening tool developed by Duke University Medical Center to help determine if a treatable mental health problem could be affecting you or a friend. It asks you to identify your school so it can provide you with information about resources available there. Over 1500 colleges and universities—including Queens College—are currently members of the ULifeline network, and over 25,000 students have used the online screening tool during the past year.
