The Family Acceptance Project (FAP) is a research, intervention, education and policy initiative at SF State University that works to decrease family rejection and risk for serious health concerns like suicide and homelessness and to promote well-being for LGBT children and adolescents in the context of families, culture and faith communities. FAP's work has been recognized by major health and mental health professional associations, and its multicultural family education materials were designated as the 1st "Best Practice" resources for suicide prevention for LGBT people by the Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention. The Family Acceptance Project is producing a planned series of short documentaries to show the journey of ethnically and religiously diverse families to support their LGBT children - based on FAP's compelling research.
