Mapping Interventions to Reduce Mental Health Services Disparities among Transgender and Nonbinary Adults

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

PROJECT NARRATIVE Transgender and nonbinary people continue to face incredibly high rates of mental health concerns, due largely to minority stress and discrimination, as well as inadequate access to affirming mental health services at most major hospitals in the United States. By assessing a large database of almost 10,000 transgender adults in the Bronx, NY, this study will explore disparities between transgender and non-transgender people’s access to quality mental health care, and will incorporate conextual information from in-depth interviews with transgender patients and affirming providers. This research will contribute to our fundamental understanding of ways healthcare systems reinforce mental health care disparities for transgender and nonbinary people, and will generate solutions to improve access to quality, affirming services at any site.
