Most transgender people have attempted suicide at least once in their lives. If you have, please lend your support here to those who are having a bad time now. Suicide is never the answer. If you are suicidal, call the Trans Lifeline at (877) 565-8860 in the US or (877) 330-6366 in Canada, or log in to our live chat room and ask to speak with a crisis moderator.
This is a forum to discuss hate and violent crimes against transgender people. It is also a place for victims to talk about what happened to them and gain help and support. Nearly 95% of crimes against us are never reported. If you are a victim, please report it here.

Encouraging him to seek out local LGBT or trans support groups is a good move, but you can only push him so hard. He has to be ready for that. But I think that, if he can just dip his toe in the water, he will quickly come around to understanding how import is that personal connection with other trans folk.
Please post all your questions and look through the forums to read about the experiences of other parents and other youth. You''ll learn a lot, I promise.
