This guidance protects young people from state-licensed therapists in Virginia who falsely claim to parents and youth that being LGBTQ is a mental illness, and therefore taking advantage of parents and harming vulnerable youth. “Conversion therapy” is harmful, unethical, and does not work. You can not change a person from who they are.
