Peer Support for Trans and Non-Binary People

A safe space where you can socialise, be yourself and explore your mental health!

Solent Mind is committed to supporting the mental health of trans and non-binary people across our service. You should feel welcome and included in all of our support groups.

We also recognise the need for trans-focused spaces to directly address the mental health challenges that can come with transition and gender non-conformity. You deserve confidential mental health support with the challenges of questioning your gender, transitioning, dealing with social stigma and isolation - and you deserve it from people who understand.

About the group

This group is for the mental health support of anyone who is not wholly comfortable with the gender they were assigned at birth. You are welcome to come no matter whether you identify as transgender, transsexual, non-binary, gender-fluid – however you choose to define yourself, you will be respected. You are also welcome if you are questioning your gender identity, or if you feel alienated from your gender and are unsure how you want to express yourself.

Our group meets in a quiet and private space every Tuesday, alternating weekly between in person and online sessions. The group is led by our trained trans and non-binary Peer Support staff and volunteers, and we come together to discuss all aspects of our mental health – gender-related and otherwise. This is a safe space in which you can be yourself, be heard, and be respected, all while receiving the support of your peers.
