      In a 2020 survey of LGBTQ youth,
      70% said their mental health has been poor most of the time or always since the start of COVID-19.
      48% said they have wanted mental health counseling since the start of COVID-19, but didn't receive it.
      50% reported their school is an LGBTQ-affirming space.
