Becoming Myself: A Transgender Perspective on Behavioral Health *Advisory*
“Becoming Myself: A Transgender Perspective on Behavioral Health” tells the stories of four transgender residents and the behavioral health challenges they faced as transgender individuals. People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) face greater health threats than their heterosexual peers, partly because of differences in sexual behavior and partly because of social and structural inequities, such as stigma and discrimination. This includes not only threats to their physical health, but to their mental health as well.
