10/07/2022 – OMH Webinar- Trans 101: Creating a Safe and Affirming Environment for Transgender Consumers!


October 5, 2022

Greetings,

The New York State Office of Mental Health’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion is excited to partner with Christian Huygen, Ph.D. and Parker Jordan, LMSW from Rainbow Heights Club to make their training webinar – Trans 101: Creating a Safe and Affirming Environment for Transgender Consumers available to behavioral health providers outside New York City. This engaging presentation will focus on how to affirm, support and work with mental health consumers who identify as transgender or gender nonconforming and will also highlight the mental health concerns that disproportionately impact this community due to stigma and marginalization. Attendees will come away with a greater sense of comfort and confidence about interacting with transgender and gender-nonconforming people in a respectful and affirming manner. Please see below for available training dates and registration instructions.
