Presented by Katy Jon Went, a transgender woman, and Dr Hadrian Ball, the Trust's former medical director. There will be plenty of opportunity for audience discussion.
They will describe biological sex determination, sexual development, gender identity, gender incongruence or dysphoria, hormonal-surgical transition, legal recognition and the effects on mental wellbeing. How can psychiatry help and not hinder. How can society be more understanding and aware? Katy will include additional content around mental health – for example on suicide risk, reason and contagion, neuroscience, intersex, non-binary and gender identity clinics – to that in the afternoon talk given in Norwich last December.
