Headspace Bendigo is setting up support group for parents and/or carers of young people asking questions, or moving through the process of clarifying gender identity. Many transgender people do not doubt their gender, but they can struggle to be open with family or to feel their gender is accepted.

Equally, parents and carers can feel isolated and alone as they seek to understand and support their family member.

Parents who would like to meet other people looking for a positive outcome for a family member, or who are struggling to manage their own or their family member’s journey, are invited to share their experiences, hear from guest speakers and learn about a range of health, legal and social topics relevant for transgender and gender-diverse young people and their families.

Contact headspace on 5434 5345 or email: headspace@bchs.com.au
