Understanding and meeting the mental health needs of Deaf people is incredibly important as Deaf people, especially those who communicate through BSL, are significantly more likely to experience mental health difficulties. Deaf people are often isolated and marginalised in society and accessing appropriate support and treatments can be challenging. In addition, Deaf people from minority and marginalised groups are especially vulnerable to experience isolation and risk not having their core needs met. Developing inclusive and co-produced services remains a challenge and a priority for services.

This Zoom event, jointly hosted by the British Society for Mental Health and Deafness (BSMHD) and St Andrew’s Healthcare, brings together leading practitioners and researchers in the field for a one day conferencing event to explore positive practice and research developments.
