Gender Minority Stress in Trans and Gender Nonconforming Young People

30 May 2019

Previous research has found that Trans and Gender Nonconforming (TGNC) adolescents and young people (YP) report much higher levels of mental health difficulties, such as depression and anxiety, than non-TGNC (cisgender) adolescents and YP. This is often said to be related to their gender identity. This study is looking to identify whether the experiences and internalised beliefs of TGNC adolescents and YP might explain why their mental health is worse than that of cisgender adolescents and YP.
