Trans Health Program and Gender-Affirming Care

Gender-affirming, high quality, patient-centered care.
Be you. We’ve got you covered.

At Fenway Health, we are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of trans and gender diverse communities. Whether through our groundbreaking research in the health and wellbeing of trans people, our ongoing policy and advocacy work, or the care we provide in our own neighborhood, we work to embody our organizational mission and values through all we do with our trans and gender diverse communities.

Our integrated model of care is one example of how we continuously work to lower the barriers trans and gender diverse people face in accessing care. From their first day at Fenway Health, our providers are trained to provide all aspects of care through an affirming, trauma-informed model. We also consider hormone therapy to be a part of primary care, and all of our Internal Medicine and Family Medicine providers are happy to work with our patients towards their individual goals.

In addition to working with current and prospective patients in accessing care, the Trans Health Program offers a number of supports and services to our trans and gender diverse community members. We currently host a variety of support groups for trans and gender diverse people and their loved ones. In addition to these recurring groups, we also host regular events and informational sessions for our community, providing reliable and accessible information on a variety of topics related to about trans and gender diverse people’s health, experiences, and resources. Our program regularly works together with local health centers, hospitals, community organizations, and other similar groups to meet the healthcare needs of our trans and gender diverse communities.

Behavioral Health

Fenway Health has behavioral health services that provide episodic treatment and assessments for surgery referrals for trans, nonbinary, and gender diverse patients of Fenway. It is best to call the Behavioral Health intake line at 617.927.6202 to ask what the current wait time is for starting treatment and whether the services available are the best fit for your needs.

To find a therapist outside Fenway Health, there are a few places people may search online. One category of websites is those created specifically for the purpose of tracking affirming providers. Some examples of these include transcaresite.org and inclusivetherapists.com. Other publicly available sites include those generally used to find behavioral health providers, such as psychologytoday.org and zencare.co, which may be narrowed down using key terms such as “transgender.” Also available are professional credentialing websites, such as the NASW.org website. Finally, many health insurance carriers have lists of therapists if you call the member services phone number on the back of your card. For further assistance in finding a behavioral health provider, feel free to directly contact the Trans Health Program or your Fenway medical provider
