Maine Trans Wellness Summit
April 21, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree - $30
Join us for the 1st Annual Maine Trans Wellness Summit!
This year’s theme: Suicide Prevention and Awareness.
Registration is now open, and operates on a sliding scale. Transgender community members, significant allies, mental health, medical, social service providers, spiritual leaders, and educators are all encouraged to attend.
Anyone close to our community here at MaineTransNet knows that 2017 was a hard year for our community. Last year saw political attacks on our lives and bodies from all levels of government, a rapidly growing epidemic of street harassment, hate crimes, and physical attacks on our community, and perhaps most obvious here in Maine, a substantial increase in the reported number of transgender suicides, suicide attempts, and mental health crisis hospitalizations from among our membership.
It’s clear to us that we have to do something, and we have to do it now.
This conference, in its first year, comes in response to these challenges, and will join Maine’s transgender community, its allies, clinical providers and support agencies in a day of dedicated learning, sharing, and planning, as we work together to achieve one goal: an end to transgender suicides in Maine.
