CMHA commemorates Transgender Day of Remembrance

On November 20, CMHA Ottawa stands with the trans community to honour the memory of transgender individuals whose lives were tragically taken by violence. Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is also a day for individuals to champion and advocate for a community that is safer and more inclusive.

Studies have revealed that transgender individuals are at a higher risk of enduring chronic physical and mental health challenges. Those who identify as transgender, face prejudices, discrimination, and often experience “everyday transphobia.” These types of discrimination and violence can lead to social isolation, unemployment, reluctance to seek healthcare, and diminished mental well-being.

CMHA Ottawa stands with the transgender community in advocating for a world that prioritizes mental health and embraces diversity. Together, we can build a more inclusive and compassionate world for all.
