STAR Center Webinar: “Recovery, Wellness and Transgender Equality: Issues, Discussion and Resources for Increasing Multicultural Competence and Effective Practices for Real Lives”
Discover and discuss recovery, wellness, and equality issues with, for, and about Transgender Persons
Deepen the understanding of some of the personal, social, societal and other complex and significant factors involved in empowerment by, with, and for Transgender Individuals
Expand knowledge of and access to resources, activities, tools and networks for increasing multicultural competence, sensitivity and effective services and program outcomes in healthcare, mental health services, and other arenas
Clarify that while a transgender identity can lead to mental health challenges because of societal structures, it is not a mental illness in itself. Furthermore, many transgender individuals are required to be diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder in order to begin the transition process – taking hormones and undergoing sexual reassignment surgery.
