In this talk, Dr. Sand Chang discusses the unique behavioral health needs of people who have a gender identity outside of the binary of man and woman. Dr. Chang addresses gender dysphoria in non-binary people, and describes several unique stressors that impact the non-binary community including discrimination from transgender and cisgender people who are threatened by gender identities that are not easily categorized as masculine or feminine. Dr. Chang also provides guidance on the role of behavioral health providers in helping non-binary identified people access gender affirming medical services.
This session was originally presented as a part of Fenway Health’s Fourth Annual Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health Conference, which took place September 21-23, 2018.
