Mental Health of Transgender Youth: The Role of Family, School, and Community in Promoting Resilience is the latest issue in the Children, Youth & Family Consortium’s (CYFC) Children’s Mental Health eReview series.

You can also explore the Transgender Toolkit to find terminology, videos, recent research, resources for schools, and links to community organizations.

What are eReviews?

eReviews summarize children’s mental health research and implications for practice and policy, and addresses the gap between what we know from the literature and what we experience working with families. Each issue explores a specific topic area and reflects the expertise of a group of people working in various research and practice settings.
