BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - There are many national and local agencies to go to for help from depression or bullying.
Gay and Lesbian Youth Services of Western New York is one local organization who wants teens to know, "you're not alone".
The agency is located on Delaware Avenue in Downtown Buffalo. They provide a safe place, and strong support system for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered youth.
"They can help themselves by finding people in their schools, in their close friends, sometimes even in their churches that will accept them exactly as they are, for who they are, without any judgement. And if we can help hook those young people up with those folks we will do that. But yeah it can get better. But it gets better if they find support. And it's there," said Marvin Henchbarger, Executive Director, Gay and Lesbian Youth Services.
The Gay and Lesbian Youth Services of Western New York can be reached at 855-0221 or glyswny.org .
There are also national places to turn to for help. They are all free and confidential and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
