Each year St Patrick’s Mental Health Services hosts its annual conference to mark the legacy of its Founder, Jonathan Swift, and his vision for excellence and innovation in mental health care.
This year’s Founder’s Day conference, entitled Youth Mental Health and Gender Dysphoria: Surviving Transitions, will explore the area of youth mental health transitions; from adolescence to young adult, and the personal, social and medical transitions which may be chosen by young people to manage gender dysphoria. The recent changing clinical context will also be explored, including increasing demand on services and an increase in gender fluidity.
