Mental Health and SUD Treatment for the Transgender Population

With Patrick X. Zhao MD., MS., Medical Director — Pride Institute, Eden Prairie MN | December 6, 2022 12:00AM CDT

Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) populations are rapidly growing in the United States in the past decades. There are strength and vulnerability in this unique cohort. This one hour continuing education program will begin with a brief review of the history of TGD, a key element in understanding the factors which lead to the significant challenges this segment of the population faces. We will focus on the commonality, especially SDoH (Social Determinant of Health), at which TGD experience co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder, and specifically how we at Pride Institute take a client centered, transgender specific approach to comprehensive mental health and substance use disorder evaluation and treatment.

Webinar objectives:

  1. To complete a brief review of the history of transgender
  2. To discuss co-occurring MH and SUD among transgender
  3. To discuss the experience of Pride Institute: client-centered, transgender specific comprehensive MH and SUD evaluation and treatment
