Family & Caregivers

Densil speaks to the role of community care in embracing your LGBTQ+ identity.

Nina West shares some advice for family and caregivers on how they can help create an affirming environment for LGBTQ+ youth.

My child/youth is trans or gender diverse. How do I support them and myself as I learn about what they're experiencing?

Nationwide's THRIVE Gender Development Program offers support for a spectrum of patients, from those just starting to explore their gender identity, to those meeting diagnostic criteria for Gender Dysphoria and/or are looking to transition. Services can therefore range from therapy alone, to integrated services with therapy, psychiatry, social work, endocrinology, and/or adolescent medicine.
