Mental health and resilience among transgender: a review
Sex and gender are two different continuums where sex is all about biological structure and function, while gender can refer to a social role of a male or female. In the same society there are a third gender who see themselves as a different gender regardless the sex they are assigned at birth. Transgender is all about gender identity. Since they are out of the social acceptance, so they are discriminated in society and other places which make them feel they are no one and nowhere. These feelings of dissatisfaction with their gender identity, no recognition in society and discrimination lead them to serious emotional distress. Despite of all many transgender people overcome these distresses by adopting the positive coping strategies. In this review paper, I will shed the light on the mental health issues are facing by transgender people and their resilience to cope with their issues.
