The transgender population needs the support of our community, and from a young age. Gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation as portrayed by society may conflict with how adolescents are perceiving themselves.

This can have devastating consequences, including suicide. The transgender population has an alarmingly high suicide rate – 41% at some point in their lives, compared with 4.6% of the general population (from American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Williams Institute from results analyzed from the National Transgender Discrimination Survey). Providers need to educate themselves and be sensitive to these challenges that are faced.

The first phase of the Transgender Support Fund will aim to provide no-cost pre- and post-operative physical therapy services to low income folks. Additional phases will include support for quality psychotherapy services, providers to help build resiliency and general well-being and surgical support for those that don't qualify or are being delayed by their insurance or Medi-Cal.
