Mental Health 

Deaf people experience high levels of mental ill health.
This section is currently being re-written to provide information about deaf people's experiences of mental health difficulties, wellbeing and access to mental health information.
We will also be providing up to date and verified information about where deaf people can access specialist help from mental health services from the NHS and other places.
As a first step, if you, or someone you know, needs urgent help about a mental health problem, please get in touch with the local NHS services.
