Pinwheel Education Series: Trans* Youth Mental Health

  • This event has passed.

October 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Trans* youth are more likely to face discrimination, prejudice, and exclusion than their cis youth peers. As a result, trans* youth often face mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. Join our panel as they discuss the best ways to support trans* youth through their mental health journey.


The Pinwheel Series is a group of free educational events open to anyone in BC. The aim is to provide learning opportunities on key mental health and substance use topics, and host a forum where people can engage in dialogue with experts and persons with lived experience.

Pinwheel events take place on Tuesdays from 12 – 1 p.m. PT.

You can join in a number of ways:

  • In person: Room P3-306, Mental Health Building #85, BC Children’s Hospital, 4555 Heather St., Vancouver, BC
  • Telephone: Dial 1-877-291-3022 and enter participant code 5069303#
  • Telehealth: Contact your local Telehealth coordinator to book a videoconference room and get them to forward your location name, room number and the ISDN/IP Address/Alias of your site to keltycentre@cw.bc.ca. For questions, please contact the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre.

Being involved in the Patient Voices Network has broadened my understanding of the system and helped me empathize with health care challenges and limitations. What matters to me is to walk away feeling that my experience matters, that I matter!
