On 5 November 2021, AusPATH, PATHA and ACON submitted a joint letter to the President of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP), calling for a review of the Position Statement “Recognising and addressing the mental health needs of people experiencing Gender Dysphoria / Gender Incongruence”.

This letter (attached below) was co-signed by 20 national and state-based community-controlled organisations, representing every state and territory across Australia, and Aotearoa New Zealand.

AusPATH, PATHA and ACON decided that this letter be published in order to support broader advocacy efforts.
