2019: Deaf Mental Health

Our Deaf Mental Health Conference took place on 2 July 2019 and attracted nearly 200 people including psychologists, audiologists, speech and language therapists and Teachers of the Deaf.

It focussed on the emotional health and wellbeing of deaf children and young people, something that we know can impact on their achievements at different stages as they grow up.

The day brought together leaders and practitioners who shared and discussed the challenges that deaf children and young people face regarding emotional health and wellbeing, and the latest techniques professionals can use to support them.

Like last year, deaf young people played a key role in the conference too. With Young People’s Advisory Board members leading one of the plenary sessions and bravely sharing why mental health is important to them, and pupils from Oak Lodge School explaining the tools and interventions they’ve used to promote positive mental health and the impact this has had on their lives.
