Supporting the Mental Health of Transgender People

Transgender people experience higher levels of depression, anxiety, and suicidality than cisgender people, and the highest rates of mental health challenges among people who identify as LGBTQIA+. Presenters speak about their work in New England, share their strategies for and experiences with supporting mental health for transgender populations and answer questions from participants.
