DETRANS HELP

RESOURCES FOR DETRANSITIONERS

/01

What is Detrans Help?

Detrans Help is a non-profit by detransitioners, for detransitioners. Our mission is to raise the alarm on the current state of “gender affirming care” and ensure detransitioners have access to the resources they need.

When ideology is placed above objectivity in our medical system, innocent people are harmed. Due to the poor quality of research into gender “medicine”, the number of detransitioners is unclear, but Detrans Help knows our population is quickly growing.

We serve detransitioners worldwide, as medical malpractice transcends local and national borders.

Why the Salamander?

When a salamander loses its tail, it regrows a new one. Detransitioners have adopted this creature as a symbol of their own emotional growth after loss. Like the salamander, detransitioners are resilient survivors.

Vision

  • To raise the profile of the needs and requirements of those negatively impacted by “gender affirming care” –– past, present and future.
  • To support detransitioners in recovery through obtaining appropriate care, advocating for change, assisting in pursuing medical negligence, and ensuring any unlawful actions are adequately challenged in the court of law.
/04

Our Core Objectives

TO EDUCATE AND INFORM

  • Dispelling myths around detransition. 

  • To expose the deficiencies in scientific evidence for medical transition, and lack of true informed consent.

TO SUPPORT DETRANSITIONERS

  • Obtaining medical support/care.

  • Pursuing medical negligence.

  • Providing community.

  • Working with other services when appropriate.

TO PROMOTE THE IMPORTANCE OF SAFEGUARDING

  • For individuals of any age considering transition.

  • Ensuring realistic expectations concerning the results of medical interventions.

TO PROMOTE AND ENCOURAGE INTELLECTUAL INTEGRITY, HIGH-QUALITY RESEARCH, AND LONG-TERM ANALYSIS OF “GENDER AFFIRMING CARE.”

  • We advocate for high-quality research into the long-term impacts of surgery, cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, social transition, and other interventions part of “gender affirming care.

  • We define high quality research as being unbiased, and peer reviewed by experts grounded in biology––not ideology.

  • We believe the current evidence is lacking in quality, longitude, and method.

  • We believe researchers and academics should be free to carry out intelligent inquiry, unhindered by political or social bias.

  • We advocate for high-quality research into supportive interventions for detransitioners.

Advocates

Detransitioners for Detransitioners

Camille Kiefel

A detransitioner who believed a non-binary double mastectomy would finally provide relief where 20 years of talk therapy hadn’t, Camille lives with physical health issues from the surgery. She found the cause of her discomforts lay in the state of her physical health all along, overlooked by medical professionals. Through improved diet, bodywork, and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, her mental health improved.

Camille is a pathfinder: Mental and physical health are connected. In an arena dominated by medical institutions and their bottom line. Instead of risky, experimental and life-altering treatments, she advocates for starting from the physical fundamentals of health.

Camille has filed the first U.S. legal case against the mental health professionals who signed off on her non-binary double mastectomy.

Help

RESOURCES, health AND RESEARCH

Help is not a “one-size-fits-all.” Detransitioners need different approaches for their unique situations. Below, are some options, research, and resources for detransitioners.

/08

Healthcare Needs

There is no ICD-10, a medical classification code, that allows physicians to diagnose and treat detransitioners. Because of this, detransitioners are struggling to get the medical care they need.

Detrans Help reached out to the World Health Organization, WHO, which manages the ICD-10 codes used for billing. Detrans Help did not receive a reply. Detransitioners need better access to medical care.

Medical care should be within reach of everyone.

/09

Organizations

Below are a list of organizations that support detransitioners and those who care about us. These organizations work directly with detransitioners, their families and advocates, offering a range of services; from therapy and mental health support, to legal services.

Those living with gender dysphoria, detransitioners and their families need access to the widest possible range of therapies and tools. This organization can connect you with a network of mental health clinicians and providers who understand the complex needs you experience, and provide thoughtful, ethical care free of politics or ideology.

 

 

This organization includes a network of advocates and concerned citizens of all walks of life, who have pooled their collective resources towards an effort to make the lives of detransitioners better.

Gender transition demands a great deal from friends and family, but who supports the supporters? This is an organization that supports parents of those who are transitioning or transitioned.

Our goal is to cultivate studies for detransitioners to improve their quality of life. New modalities for mental and physical health are emerging every day.
We advocate for more research investigating detransitioners’ specific needs.

In the meantime, here are some published studies on detransitioners. We will post more studies as they become available.
