Our Gender Identity Clinic is running a session with people with lived experience of mental ill-health to explore people's understanding, narratives and fears of screening for cancer.
This session is open to people who are accessing or waiting to access the Gender Identity Clinic. You do not need to have had a cancer screening to take part. We welcome people from all backgrounds and the session will be friendly, transgender-inclusive and creative.
The session will explore understanding of cancer screening, access challenges and fears associated with screening, and experiences of screening.
Within the session we may explore specific cancers in smaller groups:
- Breast cancer for those aged 45-70 who have breasts due to naturally occurring oestrogen or oestrogen replacement therapy
- Cervical cancer for those aged 23-64 for people who have or have had a cervix
- Bowel cancer for those aged 55-74
The session will take place on Thursday 28 September.
