Deaf Community and Mental Health Care – We SAGE Health and Wellness

The deaf community struggles daily with stigma, prejudice, and communication, but that’s not all: medical studies have found that deaf people suffer from mental health issues at about twice the rate of the general population, and also have real problems accessing needed mental health services.

The mental health issues common in the deaf community include depression, anxiety, and severe illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Mental health services are difficult for deaf people to access. One small study involving 54 people found that more than half hadn’t been able to find mental health services that they, like deaf people, could use.

We must learn how to recognize and address the differences in how a deaf individual displays feelings and expressions from those who are hearing.
