Hosted by the LGBTQ+ Health and Well-Being SIG
A conversation led by Dr. Tia Dole about how LGBTQ youth have reacted to and coped with the events of the last year.
Tia Dole, Ph.D., is the Chief Clinical Operations Officer at The Trevor Project, the world’s largest organization for suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth. Dr. Dole oversees all of The Trevor Project’s crisis services programs as well as our volunteer community on TrevorLifeline, TrevorText and TrevorChat.
She is a licensed clinical psychologist and a long-time advocate for LGBTQ rights. She received her Master’s degree in Developmental Psychopathology from Columbia University (Teacher’s College), and she received a Fulbright Fellowship to study Forensic Psychology in Switzerland. She then completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at Fordham University. During the course of her studies, Dr. Dole focused on LGBTQ people of color and early psychosis. One of her passions is normalizing mental health conditions within communities of color and helping people get access to services.
Prior to coming to The Trevor Project, she was formerly the Director of Psychological Services and Training at North Central Bronx Hospital and the Director of Training at Jacobi Medical Center. Dr. Dole is a published author and sits on several committees including The National Lifeline’s Lifeline Standards, Training & Practices Committee and The Suicide Prevention Resource Center’s (SPRC) Steering Committee. She is based in New York.
