[In press in Evidence-Based Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health] Despite great advancements in the development of evidence-based treatments (EBTs) for youth mental health problems, few EBTs have been adopted by or successfully implemented in schools. This is of concern, as schools are the most common entry point for youth mental health...

Transgender and gender diverse youth (TGD youth; i.e., children and adolescents who do not identify with their birth-assigned sex) face a variety of traumas and adversities, including those explicit to their gender identity and/or expression (hereafter “gender”; e.g., gender-related victimization, caregiver rejection). However, few studies or clini...

Objective: Transgender adolescents experience adversity accessing mental healthcare, which is exacerbated by transgender-specific mental health provider shortages in the United States. Factors associated with variability in transgender-specific mental health provider availability across states—especially at the macro-social level—have yet to be ide...

Stigma refers to societally-deemed inferiority associated with a circumstance, behavior, status, or identity. It manifests internally, interpersonally, and structurally. Decades of research indicate that all forms of stigma are associated with heightened risk for mental health problems (e.g., depression, PTSD, suicidality) in stigmatized youth (i.e...
Article
Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) adolescents and their caregivers have highlighted the dearth of providers trained in gender-affirming practices as a critical treatment barrier, yet little is known about their specific experiences in mental health therapy. The present study sought to elucidate these experiences. Qualitative description was empl...

Background: Relative to cisgender adolescents, transgender adolescents experience greater interpersonal trauma, depression, and suicidality. Structural transphobia (societal conditions constraining transgender people’s rights/wellbeing) may exacerbate associations between trauma and poor mental health for this group. Indeed, a recent study found mo...

Research consistently links internalizing/externalizing symptomatology in Black youth to discrimination (Benner et al., 2018), with a near exclusive focus on interpersonal racism (Williams, 2018). Despite recent calls (Trent et al., 2019), few studies have explored anti-Black racism at the macro level, including if and how cultural racism (i.e., a...

Objective: Mounting evidence indicates that transgender and gender diverse (TGD) youth experience significant mental health inequities and poorer psychotherapy outcomes relative to cisgender youth (Hollinsaid et al., 2020). Emerging research suggests that this may be partially attributable to structural transphobia (i.e., discriminatory state laws/...

Gender minority (GM) youths’ risk for mental health problems is partially attributable to barriers they face accessing appropriate mental health services.

Relative to their cisgender peers, gender minority (GM) adolescents—whose gender identity and/or expression differs from their birth-assigned sex (Turban & Ehrensaft, 2018)—are at elevated risk for internalizing psychopathology (Becerra-Culqui et al., 2018). This disparity may be partially attributable to their exposure to adverse childhood experie...
