The Charlotte Transgender Healthcare Group (CTHCG) is a multi-disciplinary group of licensed medical and mental health providers who work with gender-diverse individuals of all ages in the Charlotte and surrounding area. We collaborate with one another in order to stay informed about best practices, engage in case consultation, collect resources and referrals for trans-affirming services, communicate about current events, and engage in advocacy efforts.
CTHCG was founded in 2012 with the intent to provide a forum for education and consultation for local healthcare professionals working with transgender individuals and their families. As the group organized, Bylaws were established to reflect this mission to preserve a foundation of education and consultation necessary to promote professional proficiency and growth to best support the local TGNC population. CTHCG meets on a monthly basis to share best practice information, support advocacy efforts and identify affirming resources within the greater Charlotte community. Clinical consultation and resource sharing assists members in providing quality informed care, and coordinate to best accommodate the needs of the individuals we serve. More on our History.
Membership is open to those who are licensed healthcare providers in the greater Charlotte, NC area who are dedicated to providing trans-affirmative care and identify as having an interest and/or professional involvement in the treatment of transgender and gender-diverse individuals and their families. Member’s sign the following Attestation to demonstrate their commitment and level of competency in providing care to TGNC individuals. Additionally, CTHCG will soon be initiating the use of a TGNC Provider Competency Scale to assist the community in identifying providers that are the best match for their general or TGNC specific care needs based on a spectrum of levels of professional development in TGNC care.
The group is further intended to serve as a resource for the transgender community to identify healthcare professionals and other resources that provide care and services to gender-diverse individuals and their families.
