Scotland’s first Mental Health glossary  to make treatment more accessible for Deaf patients

NHS GGC launched a unique video glossary of mental health signs for the Deaf community. 

Developed in response to issues raised by Deaf service users, the glossary consists of 45 video clips covering topics including such conditions as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Trauma and Schizophrenia. 

Deaf people are 40% more likely than the hearing population to suffer mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. 

“By making this dictionary accessible and explaining what the terms mean, we hope to make healthcare more easily understandable and accessible for our Deaf community.”
