The New York State Office of Mental Health’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion is excited to share the next webinar in our Strategies for Behavioral Health Equity webinar series - Trans 101: Creating a Safe and Affirming Environment for Transgender Consumers being held on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 from 10:00am - 11:30am ET.
We will be joined by Christian Huygen, Ph.D and Parker Jordan, MSW from Rainbow Heights Club. This engaging presentation will focus on how to affirm, support and work with mental health consumers who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming and will also highlight the mental health concerns that disproportionately impact this community due to stigma and marginalization. Attendees will come away with a greater sense of comfort and confidence about interacting with transgender and gender nonconforming people in a respectful and affirming manner.
