Mpox has historically been reported in Central and Western Africa, and in early 2022, additional cases were identified in Europe and North America.

Although mental health care for TGD youth has long been considered specialty care, frontline, primary medical, and mental health clinicians must be equipped to serve TGD patients’ psychiatric needs.
