Suicidality and the Transgender Community
SPCC Education Session and Coalition Meeting
Wednesday, January 10th, 2018
The Presentation is free and open to the public
Location: Boulder County Library Reynolds Branch Room 3595 Table Mesa Drive, Boulder, CO 80305
Time: 9:30 -10:30 am (followed by regularly scheduled SPCC Coalition Meeting 10:30-11:30am, also open to all interested in SPCC)
Discussion: The transgender community is a vibrant and diverse community, yet they experience a significantly elevated occurrence of suicidality compared to the cisgender population. Suicidality and other mental health indicators are even more discouraging for trans people of color and trans youth. Suicidality and other health disparities are effects of systemic and interpersonal bias, stigma, and discrimination that trans people face. Out Boulder County will guide us through examining gender, statistics around suicide in the transgender community, and effective allyship and bystander strategies for personal and professional circumstances.
