Trans and Gender Diverse Mental Health, Wellness and Suicide Prevention Toolkit
SPECTRUM, Waterloo Region’s Rainbow Community Space, developed this toolkit on trans mental wellness and suicide prevention in response to trans community needs and priorities. Given that many trans and gender diverse people struggle with suicide, suicidal ideation and suicide attempts, this toolkit was created to:
1) Help trans and gender diverse people in and beyond Waterloo Region who may be struggling with suicidality or poor mental health.
2) Provide concrete tools and strategies to service providers working with trans and gender diverse people on inclusive care and trans suicide prevention.
3) Support parents, caregivers, friends and loved ones of trans and gender diverse people to be supportive of trans and gender diverse people in their lives.
4) Increase awareness of trans mental health and suicidality in and beyond Waterloo Region.
