Anglican Mainstream state the bleeding obvious...

Students who report being gay or bisexual are more likely than heterosexual students to engage in unhealthy risk behaviors such as tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual risk behaviors, suicidal behaviors, and violence, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Stating the bleeding obvious for a second time... GLBT students are the most victimised at school. Often they resort to self medicating, by using alcohol and drugs to deal with the mental health issues that arise from being bullied. Victimisation and discrimination increases the incidence of self harm and suicide in LGBT students. A site like Anglican Mainstream is one of the contributors, to the self hate that develops in gay students, with their continual denigration of same-sex attracted individuals.

Stating the bleeding obvious for the third time... any minority will have a higher incidence of risk taking behaviours due to the way they are treated. The way they are treated makes them a minority!
