Transgender children who have socially transitioned, that is, who identify as
the gender “opposite” their natal sex and are supported to live openly as that gender, are
increasingly visible in society, yet we know nothing about their mental health. Previous
work with children with gender identity disorder (GID; now termed gender dysphoria) has
found remarkably high rates of anxiety and depression in these children. Here we examine,
for the first time, mental health in a sample of socially transitioned transgender children.
