Posted under Resources and Publications on 8/5/15

The Canadian Trans Youth Health Survey was a national survey in which 923 trans youth participated.

Many important findings came from this study. For example, the trans youth who lived in their felt gender all of the time were almost 50% more likely to report having good or excellent mental health.

Several recommendations also emerged. These pertaining to the need for better support for the families of trans youth, safer schools, knowledgeable and accessible health care services, a reduction of the the disparities between the provinces in terms of services and support for the youth, and engaging trans youth and their families in solutions to improve their environments, supports, and growth.
