Episode 3: Moral Obligation To Disclose That You're Trans?

Hey, everyone. Welcome back to another episode of Transpired: A Trans Mission. Today I quickly discuss the age-old question of “is there a moral obligation for a transgender person to disclose that they are trans?” This is a question I hear more often than I should. Here’s my quick take on it. Text TALK to 412-735-0568 to schedule a free phone call with me.

Don't Cry Over Small Hands

Thanks for tuning into my podcast, Transpired! Today’s episode is just a brief recount of a personal story that I think is really important to share. The goal is to make others aware that words can really affect a transgender individual’s mental health, even when they don’t mean it or realize it.

NEW to MHNR Network! Transpired With Seth Carlson, a Podcast to Help Those Within the Transgender Community

Mental Health News Radio Network Welcomes Transpired With Seth Carlson, a Podcast to Help the Transgender Community and Those that Love Them.

“Everyone deserves to feel validated in their struggles, and everyone deserves to not feel like a burden or an outcast. I want to use my voice and platform to inform and provide insight so that life can be a little easier through their journey. I want to let those parents know, to let those questioning their gender know, that I’ve been through this, and they can absolutely get through it too. Happiness is on the other side of this.” – Seth Carlson

After the mother of a client had an incredible emotional impact on Seth Carlson he decided to begin his podcast, Transpired.  His client’s mother shared her tears of joy after her own transgender child used the tools he had learned from Seth to successfully make it through a very rough and suicidal time.  Seth’s goal is to gain a broader reach and help as many people that are struggling and questioning their gender, their parents, and anyone who just wants to understand a little bit more.  As a life coach and mentor to those within the transgender community, Seth uses his own life experiences and everything he’s learned while mentoring within the community to help others know that they are not alone and that they can get through this.

Seth feels that the most important thing that cisgender individuals (those that identify with their born gender) need to try to understand that it’s more than just a label. Being transgender comes with some of the most difficult mental health struggles imaginable. He wishes to use his knowledge and experience to help those struggling with their own issues.
