NJPA Celebrates Pride Month!

NJPA is committed to advancing a scientific perspective to improve the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and beyond (LGBTQI+) people, of increasing understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity as aspects of human diversity, and of reducing stigma, prejudice, discrimination and violence toward LGBTQI+ people. 

NJPA endorses the American Psychological Association’s efforts to bring the best and most current research to bear on the most significant issues and questions confronting LGBTQI+ people and society at large. 

In honor of Pride Month, NJPA is sharing various helpful resources to help children and families celebrate who they are, reduce stress and anxiety, and navigate challenging experiences.
