New Funding, CIHR Planning Grant

Ann Travers and Marina Morrow (Director of the Centre) have secured planning grant funding for “Safety Nets for Gender Variant Children and Youth”.

The planning project “will facilitate and support the establishment of a team of multi-sectoral key experts to identify the shortcomings of current public and social services (health care, public education, criminal justice system) accessible to gender variant children and youth and their families.

The project team will engage multiple viewpoints to identify key components of a new educational model and a framework for improving standards of care of gender variant children and youth in health, mental health, and social services contexts.

This work will be informed by those with lived experience, and be responsive to the unique needs that affect the development and mental health of gender variant children and youth.” See the CIHR funding decision database for more details.
