Gender-affirming therapy is a therapeutic stance that focuses on affirming the client’s gender identity
and does not try to “repair” it. Gender-affirming care is crucial to the overall health and well-being of transgender and nonbinary children and adolescents. Gender diverse adolescents, in particular, face significant health disparities compared to their cisgender peers. Transgender and gender nonbinary adolescents are at increased risk for mental health issues, substance use, and suicide.
