This link takes you to the text of HB 580, dropped (filed) with the Georgia General Assembly House of Representatives on March 5, 2019. HB 580 would prohibit mental health professionals licensed in Georgia from providing conversion therapy to minors.

Conversion therapy has no scientific basis, contradicts the medical community’s understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity, and puts young people at risk of serious harm, including severe depression, anxiety, and substance misuse, which contribute to an elevated risk of suicide.

Children should receive care that first, does no harm.
