Hershberger, Scott L.; D'Augelli, Anthony R.
Developmental Psychology, v31 n1 p65-74 Jan 1995
Studied 165 lesbian, gay, and bisexual youths, 15 to 21 years old, to determine the impact of verbal abuse, threat of attacks, and assault on their mental health. Found a direct effect of victimization on mental health, whereas family support and self-acceptance in concert mediated this victimization and mental health relation. (MDM)
