Tasmanian Gender Service
Tasmanian Gender Service (TGS) is for children and young people, and their families, who are experiencing gender related issues. It is a specialised service which offers help for families living in Tasmania.
TGS offers advice, assessment and treatment (hormones/ psychological support/ fertility counselling), if indicated, to children and young people who are experiencing significant difficulties with either being gender diverse* (wanting to express their gender in different ways) or experiencing gender dysphoria* (feeling uncomfortable with their gender assigned at birth). Not all young people experiencing gender dysphoria or gender variance will need to be seen by the TGS, although if medical treatment (hormones) is required, then you will need to be seen by the TGS.
