Youth with non-binary gender identities do not identify as categorically male or female. They experience unique social determinants of health and have specific health care needs that are often underserved. These youth are more likely to engage in health care if they feel comfortable disclosing their non-binary gender identity in an affirming environment to providers with a basic understanding of gender diversity. In this webinar, Alex S. Keuroghlian, MD MPH, will review concepts and terminology related to non-binary gender identities, including correct names and pronouns. The webinar will also focus on best mental health clinical practices and how to create an inclusive and affirming health care environment for youth with non-binary gender identities.
