About Our Support Groups

 

Beginning in January, 2020, Denver Health will be offering therapeutic support groups for transgender patients who are planning to undergo or have undergone vaginoplasties. This group will offer you the opportunity to come and make connections with other transgender/nonbinary individuals with similar experiences, discuss frustrations, joys or anxieties having to do with surgery and navigating the medical system as a trans/nonbinary person, and provide support to other group members who may need it. These groups are open, which means you do not need to commit to a certain number of sessions or come to every one if you don't want to. However, we do expect it will be most helpful to engage in regular attendance to form stronger bonds with group leaders and other group members.


Groups will be held on a biweekly basis, beginning Thursday, January 30th, 2020 for the post-surgery group and Thursday, February 6th, 2020 for the pre-surgery group. The remaining schedule for the first six months of 2020 is below. 


Groups will be held on the Denver Health Main Campus, Pavilion C, 4th Floor, Room 401.  

Start time: 4:00 PM

End time: 5:00 PM


If you have questions or are interested in participating, please contact Hope Anderson at 303-602-6760. A group leader will talk with you about the group ahead of time to see if you would be a good fit. This will be a 15-20 minute conversation by phone to discuss your goals for coming to group, your mental health history, and what you should expect.
