Welcome to the 2021 Better Together Conference Podcast. Recorded live at the Adelaide Convention Centre on the 18th and 19th of June, 2021. These sessions were proudly recorded and produced by JOY 94.9.  

Is the health care system really supporting the needs of trans and gender diverse children and young people?

The South Australian health care system has been identified as a first of port call for families with a child who is gender questioning. The Commissioner for Children and Young People’s ‘First Port of Call’ report states the experience for families seeking out help is “hit and miss”. It’s time for a health check, to see how well health care services are working for young people. 

Facilitator: Jane Russo (Transcend Australia), Matthew Wright-Simon (Ecocreative).  

Speakers: Zac Cannell, Helen Connolly, Dr Jemma Anderson.
