Trans Healthcare is Not Fit For Purpose. Neither is Our Mental Healthcare: Alex’s Story
Family of Alexandra Greenway, who died in 2019, say she was let down by unfit and under-pressure NHS services, and by a ‘trans-blind’ approach that leaves people’s needs unmet.
Alex was ‘too low-risk to be detained, too high-risk for therapy — and there’s nothing in the middle’.
The lack of mental health funding in Bristol, and due care as a result, means we are failing people. Trans health care, nationally, is not fit for purpose.
