This video is one step towards our vision of widespread education and awareness about Transgender issues in mental health care.
We know accessible, affordable and dignified health care for all our communities is possible when we all learn and work together.


Transgender people and the DSM

Cross-gender identification is as old as humanity itself — it has been expressed in a variety of ways across cultures and throughout history.

Gender variant individuals have been challenging stigmatization, oppression, and invisibility for decades. A larger international transgender rights movement emerged in the late 20th century.

Transgender people and their allies continue to challenge DSM systems of classification as pathologizing, dehumanizing, and non-responsive to the needs of Transgender communities.

We are building our own cultures of education, resilience, and health care services.
