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 a number of useful videos which can be found here.

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.
