APA Releases Statement Condemning Anti-Trans Directive in Texas
The president of the American Psychological Association, Frank C. Worrell, issued a statement against a directive from the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, that urges people to report the parents of transgender minors if they seem to be providing their children with gender-affirming medical care.
Worrell says, in part, that the “ill-conceived directive … will put at-risk children at even higher risk of anxiety, depression, self-harm, and suicide. Gender-affirming care promotes the health and well-being of transgender youth and is provided by medical and mental health professionals, based on well-established scientific research. The peer-reviewed research suggests that transgender children and youth who are treated with affirmation and receive evidence-based treatments tend to see improvements in their psychological well-being.”
