Depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues increase threefold among transgender children as young as nine, a new study found.Dr Ken Pang, who runs a paediatric practice that focuses on the care of transgender children and adolescents, is one of the authors of the study.
He said that the reasons for this could range from gender dissatisfaction, the stress of experiencing stigma, and the children experiencing other forms of discrimination like transphobia.
The researchers also found that transgender children are almost six times as likely to feel suicidal than cisgender children.
