Deaf people are 2 to 3 times more likely to experience mood and anxiety disorders, trauma exposure, and addiction compared to hearing people. The DeafYES! team is tackling these disparities head-on.
We conduct research on best practices in Deaf behavioral health care, we offer training and community outreach about these state-of-the-art approaches, and we provide research-informed counseling services to the local Massachusetts Deaf community.
We partner with the Deaf community to develop innovative addiction and mental health resources that are uniquely and expertly tailored for Deaf signing people.
Our Deaf and ASL-fluent therapists offer accessible counseling to adult individuals, couples, and families in Massachusetts. Both in-person and video options are available to meet your needs.
To maximize the impact of DeafYES!, we provide trainings and community outreach presentations across the nation about Deaf- friendly mental health and addiction treatment.
Our team specializes in providing state-of-the-art training on trauma, mental health, and addiction in the Deaf community. We offer trainings for community members as well as mental health professionals.
