Conversation Therapy is dangerous
 

Conversion therapy is abusive, particularly for children. The self harm rate of LGBT children is directly and positively impacted by a supportive environment. Conversion therapy often results in self harm or suicide. Often the “practitioners” of conversion therapy are not licensed in mental health. This would be a step backward for Virginia.
