Stephenson discusses new online resource aimed at linking LGBT youth to salient community services and resources

a PSC In The News reference, 2016

"Introducing ICON, Michigan's new health services & life skills app for sexual & gender minority youth." - UM School of Public Health. 01/14/2016.

Launched in December 2015, iCON is a web-based system intended to help LGBT young adults gain access to resources that are right for them. Rob Stephenson, a PI of iCON, says: “Young gay and bisexual men and transgender women face a number of barriers to getting the services they need. Some don’t know where to look for help, and others assume that they will be turned away or discriminated against. iCON aims to solve this problem by providing an easy-to-use and searchable database of local resources.” Users can choose from 16 life-skills modules – including education, legal advice, social activities and transportation. Currently testing iCON in southeast Michigan, Stephenson and colleagues plan to expand the application to other regions if the testing demonstrates success.
