Associate Professor Campbell Paul

Campbell is a Consultant Infant, Child and Family Psychiatrist at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne and Honorary Principal Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Melbourne. For many years Campbell has had an interest in the experience of very young children experiencing gender dysphoria. Many years ago he was privileged to meet with some very young children who talk with their parents about intense distress about their gender. Around the world there has been a significant increase in our understandings about how children experience their own gender, and about ways in which we may be able to help. Campbell helped establish the Gender Service at the Royal Children’s Hospital. The Clinic provides interdisciplinary assessment and treatment for children and young people under the age of 18 years who are experiencing significant gender dysphoria, and supports families. He is a member of the World and the Australia and New Zealand Professional Associations for Transgender Health and of the Board of Directors of the World Association for Infant Mental Health.
