Quicker treatment for transgender children

This petition had 18 supporters

Trans children and teenagers have many difficulties to face in life. The challenges of being trans in a cis normative world are immense. It causes depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation and attempts. 

Our children and teenagers are not equipped to deal with society's distaste for anyone not in the expected mould. 

The Tavistock Gender Identity Development Service needs our help to increase resources which can be offered to children and young people. The waiting list is currently 10 months. To a 14 year old this time seems interminable while they live in a body that is betraying them daily. 

Please help trans children, their friends and families by signing this petition so that it can be used to develop the service provision to trans children and teenagers.
