Published on Jul 24, 2012

San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center created this video with inspiring messages of support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth who may be struggling with rejection, bullying or even thoughts of suicide.

The video is part of the national It Gets Better Project that began in 2010 in response to several teen suicides related to bullying. http://www.itgetsbetter.org/ Thousands of videos from celebrities, politicians, organizations and others help LGBT youth see the potential to have happy, successful lives despite the problems they may be facing today. San Francisco General is the first hospital in the Bay Area to participate with its own video.

The video features stories from five staff members who once struggled with coming out to family as gay and transgender, bullying, thoughts of suicide and failed attempts at conversion therapy. Dozens more staff members join in a chorus of supportive messages that working through life's challenges pays off.
