Information

The Monash Health Gender Clinic aims to assist the trans, gender diverse and non-binary community through:

  • Conducting specialist mental health assessments relevant to gender dysphoria in accordance with international guidelines (World Professional Association for Transgender Health Standards of Care v7).
  • Referring where appropriate to experienced private or public clinicians who are able to assist with hormone therapy, surgery, psychotherapy or voice therapy.
  • Providing ongoing mental health support related to an individual’s gender transition.
  • Conducting multidisciplinary meetings to co-ordinate care for clients.

Please be advised that Gender Clinic is not an emergency response service for acute mental health conditions. Should urgent action be required, please contact your local Psychiatric Triage Service. If in the Monash Health area, call 1300 369 012.

The Gender Clinic currently has a wait list system but if you prefer a quicker response you may wish to be seen privately. For a list of private providers go to the following page: http://www.anzpath.org/about/service-providers/victoria/ or alternatively you can click on this link List of Private Providers. You can remain on the Gender Clinic waiting list whilst seeing private providers.
