Support Group for Trans Young People
Our support group for trans young people between the ages of 8 and 12 is returning on September 24th, from 12pm to 2pm.
Parents / guardians with children who are gender non-conforming or questioning their gender are welcome to bring them along to meet other young people, and to meet other parents as well.
Outcomers has a parent’s support group that stays connected on whatsapp, that any parents of trans young people are welcome to join as well to keep up to date on information and upcoming events.
Online Sessions with Dr. Brinkmann
We have two sessions with Dr. Brinkmann coming up this month that I wanted to share with you – please feel free to share with anyone who you think might be interested. Dr. Brinkmann is a gender psychologist based in West Cork. The sessions she facilitates are not medical sessions, they are spaces for trans young people and their parents to meet others in similar situations to discuss challenges and joys in their life and to ask Lisa questions. These have been very successful since they began in 2020, and the demand has continued to grow. As they are on zoom, they are not restricted to one geographical area. They are free of charge.
If you know any trans and non-binary young people aged 12 and up or parents of trans and non-binary young people who would like to join this space, they can register for the event on the below links. If young people would like their youth worker to attend the session, you are welcome to join along with the young person.
