In this chapter, we examine the prevalence of bullying experiences and suicidality in transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) youth, as well as the research demonstrating and theoretical models explaining the relationship between bullying and suicidality. Theory and research presented also cover aspects of resilience. Finally, we present suggestions on how to address these patterns and support the development of healthy youth, regardless of gender identity or expression. Recommendations are presented specifically for parents and teachers, healthcare providers, and policy makers.
