A systematic review found a high prevalence of mental health problems among transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) individuals living in China and that there was limited access or use of gender-affirming or mental health care. These findings were published in The Lancet Public Health. The authors of this review, which comprised 30 studies, sought to consolidate research about the impact on mental health among TGNC individuals living in China.
Most transgender youth in China experience parental abuse or neglect (92.8%) and abuse or bullying at school (76.6%). This trend has, in part, been attributed to the strong traditional Chinese values of the family unit, which contributes to discrimination and ostracization.
