Review of RANZCP position statement on gender dysphoria

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) is revising Position Statement 103: Recognising and addressing the mental health needs of people experiencing Gender Dysphoria / Gender Incongruence. The RANZCP Board and Steering Group have required that an extensive range of evidence is considered in this process. The RANZCP remains committed to supporting the LGBTIQ+ community and is mindful of the sensitivities around this topic, which necessitates a thoughtful and respectful approach. It is anticipated that a revised version of Position Statement 103 will be published by the end of 2023. 

Any questions regarding the review and revision of Position Statement 103 can be directed to the RANZCP at
