In the current world of ever-increasing political attacks and proposed policies in our schools and at the government level—which discriminate against trans youth and adults as well as seeks to criminalize and erase their mental health and other gender affirming care—trans emotional trauma is on the rise. In addition to dealing with gender dysphoria, trans people are hearing and seeing their very existence being questioned and devalued causing a spike in anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation.
The last thing a trans client needs at this delicate time is to come to you for mental health support only to inadvertently be hurt yet again. Not deliberately, but for a lack of the specialized knowledge and insight needed to truly care for this especially vulnerable community.
