Mismatch between gender identity, body and social role can be distressing for young people. This can lead to mental health issues. The Raine Medical Research Foundation proudly supports The GENTLE Project, which aims to understand long-term outcomes of mental and physical health by tracking gender diverse young people in the CAMHS Gender Diversity Service (GDS) at Princess Margaret Hospital. Gender diverse young people need to be supported in their identities.
