Sarnia-Lambton Rebound has been providing supports to LGBTQ2S youth since 2013. Over this time period we have seen the need for more specialized support for those youth who identify as transgender. This group of youth has been identified to be at a particularly high risk for experiencing mental health challenges, discrimination, bullying and family disruptions.
Over the past five years there has been an unprecedented increase in youth identifying as transgender which has led to an overwhelming increase in referrals to gender identity services.
This NEW program has been developed to provide youth and parents support, guidance and information that will help them to navigate the changing landscape of gender identity and transgender issues.
The Transparent Program is open to youth ages 12 to 24 and their parents/caregivers.
Meeting virtually alternating Wednesdays (for parents/caregivers and youth) 5-6pm
