Mental Health Services and Deaf/Hard of Hearing

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-we-need-create-mental-health-services-which-inclusive-/

In the lead up to a Mental Health Today Live webinar on improving the accessibility of mental health services for deaf and hard of hearing people (13th June 11 AM – 12 PM), we summarise the current landscape and barriers to accessing face-to-face therapy for that community. And introduce some good practices that can be implemented in producing a more equitable mental health recovery process.

As someone who is hard of hearing and living with/caring for a deaf father this is something that I am particularly interested in.  All healthcare, physical and mental falls woefully short of adequate accommodations for deaf and hard of hearing.
