SHINE SA, March 2017
SHINE SA has expanded its services for trans and gender diverse people, with the Trans Wellbeing service. This service provides non-urgent counselling, peer support and case management for people who are trans, gender diverse and gender questioning, their family members, partners and supports.
Trans Wellbeing is based at 57 Hyde Street in the city, and offers professional and peer support and information that is outside the mainstream health system.
Trans Wellbeing recruits from the South Australian transgender community wherever possible and includes volunteers and paid staff with a lived experience (trans women, trans men, people who identify as non-binary, partners and parents).
The service sees people from the age of 12 years and up, with a peer support service for trans/gender diverse people aged 18 years and up. Those aged 12 – 17 years receive a service tailored to their age.
Services provided through Trans Wellbeing are:
- peer telephone support and information
- peer support and case management
- peer support program (18 years and up)
- clinical psychology
