* Transgender and MH presentation 2011

leave a comment »

As, at the last moment, the previously invited original speaker was unable to attend, I offered to give to the local mental health interagency meeting, a short presentation on the topic of transgender and mental health.

My presentation was researched, and assembled, in a matter of only two days. Hence, it is not, and should not be considered, exhaustive.

The presentation nonetheless generated considerable interest and discussion.
