Mental Health of Transgender Children Who Are Supported in Their Identities Olsen et al Pediatrics March 2016
CONCLUSIONS: Socially transitioned transgender children who are supported in their gender identity have developmentally normative levels of depression and only minimal elevations in anxiety, suggesting that psychopathology is not inevitable within this group. Especially striking is the comparison with reports of children with GID; socially transitioned transgender children have notably lower rates of internalizing psychopathology than previously reported among children with GID living as their natal sex.It's not GID per se that causes the horrific suicide rates in Trans kids. It's the combination of lack of supportive treatment and persecution - and even kids with a supportive environment havce elevated anxiety about that.
"Bathroom Bills" and other transphobic legislation kills kids. We have the proof of that.
