LGBT Youth, including bullying and suicide prevention
MPIPP AND PUBLIC POLICY
The mission of the Michigan Project for Informed Public Policy is to use science-based research to educate state and local public policy makers, health care professionals, and the general public about the mental health impact of discrimination on those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), their families, and allies in order to impact public policy decisions.
MPIPP offers educative testimony at state and local public policy meetings and is able to assist in helping LGBT advocates and organizations by providing supportive research data on the mental health impact of continued discriminatory public policy. MPIPP does not lobby and does not support or oppose specific legislation; our goal is to assist policymakers in making data-driven decisions.
