Abstract

The Scottish Transgender Alliance, based within the Equality Network, is funded by the Scottish Government to work in partnership with a wide range of public bodies, academics, community sector organisations and individuals to progress trans equality, human rights and inclusion. One of the Scottish Transgender Alliance’s key areas of focus is improving health service provision for trans people. Anecdotal evidence among trans groups suggested trans people are experiencing high levels of depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicidal ideation related to transphobic discrimination experiences and lack of appropriate health service provision (especially in regard to lack of access to timely, good quality and patient-centred NHS gender reassignment services). Therefore, during 2012 the Scottish Transgender Alliance, in partnership with TransBareAll, the Trans Resource and Empowerment Centre, Traverse Research and Sheffield Hallam University, conducted research into trans mental health and wellbeing.
