Which mental and physical health resources do we lack?
What kind of community support would help us?
What information do we look for, when, and how?
How many of us are there?
In short – who are we and what are our needs?
Help us help ourselves in the first Vancouver Island-focused trans needs assessment. Let’s document our needs so we can present empirical, local data to policy makers and others in decision-making positions. This project is community-driven and guided by an Advisory Board of Vancouver Island trans people, mental and physical health care providers, educators, and researchers.
