Mental Health

Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. Mental Health is a big issue in the Deaf community. At the moment, many Deaf people are experiencing isolation due to social distancing. This can cause a decline in mental health. 

It is important that Deaf people have access to proper mental healthcare. The below video and poster contains information on accessible services for Deaf people. In particular SignHealth (https://signhealth.org.uk) offers services in both English and British Sign Language. They also offer a Crisis Text Service for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Text the word ‘DEAF’ to 85258 for free 24/7 support.
