Transgender people are becoming more visible
in society and so more common in the day-to-day work of
psychiatrists. While transgender (trans) people are no more likely
to have major mental health problems than non-trans people (also
commonly referred to as 'cisgender' people), trans people are
nonetheless still subject to the range of mental health issues
cisgender people may face.
Such mental health issues may be exacerbated
by discrimination and associated minority stress. Discrimination
and minority stress can, of course, precipitate conditions such as
depression and anxiety.
This module aims to equip psychiatrists with
some basic information about trans people to aid them in practising
in a sensitive manner with this sometimes marginalised group. It
will also signpost when to refer on to specialist gender clinics,
and detail a little of the work of psychiatrists and the
multidisciplinary team within such clinics.
