Jessie is 22 years old. She was abused physically and emotionally by her partner and became severely depressed. Jessie found help and support through our specialist service, DeafHope, which supports deaf women who have been affected by domestic violence. We supported Jessie for three years, placing her in a refuge and helped her overcome depression.

When Bexi’s friend died she felt depressed and alone. Hearing therapy just wasn’t the solution – especially if Bexi knew the interpreter and didn’t feel comfortable opening up in front of them. Fortunately Bexi was able to access deaf therapy via BSL Healthy Minds. The therapist understood the issues that deaf people face and she could discuss her problems one-to-one. Therapy the deaf way was right for Bexi and it’s right for many other deaf people.
