Mental Health professionals serve several essential, and different functions in providing transgender healthcare. The first is to provide client centered, trans-friendly treatment and care specific to their unique needs. The second is to provide a Mental Health Assessment and diagnosis of gender dysphoria to support medical transition.
The BCN is working with the provider network to establish a living directory of Trans friendly providers. These Mental Health Professionals will be identified as having varying experience working with the Transgender population. The BCN will be working closely with provider supervisors and therapists to ensure tracking of required trainings are met and up to date.
The goal at the BCN is for this living document to continue to grow with Trans Educated, Trauma Informed, and Cultural Competent Mental Health Professionals.
