Synopsis

For almost 100 years the Tavistock and Portman has been at the forefront of exploring young minds. This series, with exclusive access to the Trust, goes behind Tavistock's doors for the first time. The first programme in this series follows two families who attend the Tavistock's Gender Identity Development Service, through life-changing decisions. The Tavistock's gender service is the country's only NHS-run gender clinic for children and young people with gender dysphoria - a profound distress caused by feeling they've been born into the wrong body. ©Channel 4 publicity
