When a child has questions or concerns related to gender, the entire family is affected. We are a safe, supportive resource and treatment center for gender-variant children, adolescents and young adults who are exploring their gender identity.
Our team, which includes doctors and mental health professionals, provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary, family-centered care for children, teens and young adults questioning their assigned gender and/or seeking gender-affirming consultation and treatment. We are committed to providing care in compassionate and respectful ways.
The Dean’s Advisory Council collaborates with other groups to cultivate visible supports and a vibrant, connected community of LGBTQI+ individuals and their allies at YSM. The Advisory Council helps guide the expansion of LGBTQI+ health research, and coordinates efforts to foster an inclusive, patient-centered environment in which tailored care is available for LGBTQI+ patients. Furthermore, the Advisory Council oversees initiatives that prepare our trainees to serve all of their patients with excellence, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
