What is Gender Identity Disorder?
Gender dyphoria which is also known as Gender Identity Disorder, applies to someone who is unhappy with their biological sex and wishes to belong to the other one.
This happens when a young person feels that they have been born in the wrong body, that they should have been a girl if you were born a boy or vice-versa.
In most people their gender identity is the same as their sex but in a few people their gender identity and sex do not match and this can cause distress.
The charity Mermaid, who offer support to children and teenagers with gender identify issues, say they recognise that there are problems within the current systems in place to help young people.
However, they say the earlier signs of Gender Identity Issues can be recognised, the sooner help can be given within the NHS.
The charity would encourage families to get in touch with them to help provide expert advice and support: http://www.mermaidsuk.org.uk/.
