Mental health problems in the transgender population: what is the evidence?
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter discusses the findings from previous studies investigating mental health problems among transgender people. As most of the studies take place among people attending transgender health services the chapter will primarily focus on this group. The chapter will critically review the findings of the studies in order to make sure that they are relevant to the majority of the transgender people attending transgender health services. The chapter will divide the studies in two main categories, 1) those investigating how common mental health problems are in people by comparing them to cisgender groups and 2) studies looking as to how mental health problems change before and after treatment.
