Scotland Transgender study: 96% hurt themselves and have ‘incredibly high levels’ of mental health issues

Up until recently it was called gender dysphoria, but the transgender movement has tried to minimize the stigma of mental illness. A new study reveals that virtually all transgender students are self-harming in Scotland and found “incredibly high levels” of mental health issues in transgenders.

The pro-gay “Stonewall” school report for Scotland with the University of Cambridge shows 96 percent of the country’s transgender youth engage in self-destructive behavior, including cutting themselves.

School Report Scotland” surveyed more than 400 LGBTQI Scottish students. The survey focused on bullying and name-calling but also revealed suicide attempts, depression, anxiety, and self-harm.

Their survey found 96 percent of trans students attempting self-harm, 60 percent of homosexuals also self-harm, while 40 percent of Scottish trans pupils have tried to commit suicide, a quarter of homosexuals have, too.

Walt Heyer of Sex Change Regret told LifeSiteNews that the tragic statistics from Scotland are not surprising.

“The Stonewall Scotland’s survey, which found 96 percent of trans students self-harm, is consistent with high rates of suicides and mental disorders reported among trans people for 50 years,” Heyer said. “My analysis, ‘50 Years of Sex Changes, Mental Disorders, and Too Many Suicides‘, supports the study.”

U.S. statistics are not much brighter for homosexual and trans young people. The largest survey of transgenders in the United States found nearly half were victims of sexual assault, 77 percent have been victims of partner violence, nearly 40 percent admit to serious mental health problems, and 40 percent have attempted suicide.

Stonewall group suggested that more explicit, homosexuality-focused sex education is the solution to curb the “alarming” experiences of trans and gay students.

Heyer countered Stonewall’s argument that bullying and social rejection are the cause of transgender self-harm and suicide.

“It is false and misleading to say ‘bullying’ is causing 40 percent of trans people to attempt suicide,” he told LifeSiteNews. “People who are emotionally, socially and psychologically mentally fit do not attempt suicide, yet 40 percent of transgender persons do attempt suicide. It’s because they have serious mental disorders.”

Heyer cited studies by Suicide.org that found both that people with mental disorders attempt suicide and that trans people have mental disorders. “Over 90 percent of people who die by suicide have a mental illness at the time of their death,” the studies revealed.

“Individuals who identify as transgender do so largely because they are suffering from an undiagnosed disorder known as ‘comorbid disorders,’” Heyer explained. “Their condition remains untreated before, during and after ‘changing’ genders, so the social and emotional disorders remain untreated also.”

Heyer pointed out that 90 percent of attempted suicides are a result of mental illness. He cited a major study that found “at least 62.7 percent of individuals who identify as transgender are in a fact suffering psychiatric mental disorders.”
