VENI: Not straight? Sexual orientation disparities in macro and micro-processes of youth victimization and mental health

Dr. Laura Baams (RUG –Pedagogical and Educational Sciences)

Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) youth report poorer mental health (depression, suicidality) and are victimized more often than heterosexual youth. How can this be explained? Using survey- and daily-diary studies, I will research sexual orientation disparities, critical mechanisms, and whether a positive school climate can help improve mental health.
