If you feel depressed, anxious or stressed, we can help. If you have panic attacks or social anxiety, we can help you too.
We have a service called BSL Healthy Minds. We provide counselling and psychological therapies in BSL for Deaf people. We also support deaf people who cannot sign.
Most of our therapists are Deaf themselves, which means there is no need for an interpreter. Our hearing therapists are fluent signers and have full Deaf awareness training so deaf people do not need to rely on lip speakers.

Our service makes sure there are no communication barriers when you access mental health support.
