John Hunter Children’s Hospital Gender Management Program aims to provide outpatient services geared towards supporting the physical, mental, and social health of children and youth and their families as they progress through their gender identity development.
Gender dysphoria refers to the distress that a person may experience when there is incongruence between their biological gender and their expressed gender. Transgender and gender diverse young people have considerably higher rates of self-harm, attempted suicide, depression and anxiety compared to their cis-gender peers. Outcomes for these young people can be significantly improved through medical support.
