The therapy ban has passed the New Hampshire House. Next stop: the Senate.
The House passed HB 587 by a vote of 179-171 on February 8. See below for details of the vote. The measure seeks to prohibit licensed mental health professionals from offering talk therapy for minors who are experiencing unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria. The bill threatens loss of licensure for licensed therapists engaging in open discussion guided by a client’s self-determined goal, if that goal is reducing or eliminating same-sex attraction and/or gender dysphoria. | Keep Reading at Cornerstone
