Abstract

International literature has demonstrated that trans young people have poorer mental health outcomes compared to their peers, but there has been little prior exploration of this issue in Australia. This thesis examines three interrelated topics: the mental health status of trans young people in Australia, the extent and perceptions of support currently available for trans young people within medical and mental health services, and potential alternative or complementary approaches to mental health care to traditional clinical options. Recommendations for future health service delivery to improve the mental health of trans young people are discussed.
