Deaf Services

We offer consultations and advice to local, regional and national care providers. For service users whose first language is BSL we have developed two short videos.

We adopt models of recovery and wellbeing and undertake assessments and work with people experiencing:

  • complex psychological difficulties such as anxiety and depressive disorders
  • enduring and severe mental illnesses
  • mental health problems complicated by deaf issues and identities
  • possible needs of mental health services/care outside Nottinghamshire

People wanting more information about deafness and health should visit the Sign Health website.
