TENI Launches Heads Up!
Yesterday TENI launched Heads Up: Trans Guide to Mental Health and Wellbeing. This guide offers practical advice and support for trans people. We know that people go through difficult times but your mental health and wellbeing are as important to look after as your physical health.
This guide is filled with practical tips and resources to support mental health and wellbeing for trans people, including: accepting yourself, coming out, dealing with transphobia, coping with anxiety, self-care, coping with financial difficulties, positive ageing, supporting your trans child, coping with family difficulties.
You can read the guide here.
The launch of Heads Up is part of TENI's TRANSforming Lives campaign. This new campaign promotes the mental health and wellbeing of the trans community in Ireland. The campaign focuses on sharing personal experiences and evidence-based, simple and powerful day-to-day steps that we can take to protect our own mental health.
