Inside the Research
Few studies have examined protective factors that reduce the risk of suicide among transgender and non-binary (TNB) people, such as community connectedness, identity pride, and psychotherapy. This study will use ecological momentary assessment to gather information on the experiences of TNB adults to understand what factors decrease risk of suicide over short periods of time in daily life. Results will inform development of affirming suicide prevention strategies for TNB people.
