Summary: This US study used a survey to investigate the relationships among parental support, quality of life, and depression in trans teenagers using a sample of 66 young people who were accessing gender-affirming healthcare. Parental support was defined as parental help, advice, and confidante support. The researchers found that parental support was significantly associated with higher life satisfaction, lower perceived burden of being trans, and fewer depressive symptoms.
