Statement on the Banning of Conversion "Therapy" for Minors in Michigan

Updated: Oct 23, 2023

Today, Governor Whitmer signed House Bill 4616 into law, banning mental health providers from providing "conversion therapy" to LGBTQ+ minors. We applaud this step to protect LGBTQ+ youth as Michigan joins 21 other states who ban this dangerous practice. Licensed medical professionals have a duty to uphold the public health & welfare & this practice violates their duty & ignores the science & research on this issue. There is more work to do, but CFM is pleased with the progress being made in our State to protect LGBTQ+ people, even in the face of an unprecedented number of attacks on our community around the nation.
