Who we are and what we do
The Samaritans and SignHealth would like to reassure the Deaf community that if you are struggling with your mental health, please get in touch with SignHealth’s Psychological Therapies Service, provided in BSL, on to get a referral or if you are at crisis point, please email The Samaritans 24h email support
Remember it is ok not to feel ok and to talk to us.
SignHealth works to improve the health and wellbeing of people who are Deaf. We provide some services directly in British Sign Language (BSL), we work in partnership with the NHS, and we also campaign to remove the barriers Deaf people face..
You can find out more about our services and campaigns. You can also access the country’s largest collection of BSL health videos. And you can read about our research which showed that Deaf people experience poorer health than hearing people – largely because of poorer access to information and services.
