What can families do to support their deaf teen’s mental health & well-being?

NDC has several resources to encourage family support in mental health and building self-confidence:

Self-Care as Part of Mental Health

Strategies for Parenting Deaf Teenagers During COVID-19

Deafverse Can Help Deaf Teens Connect and Learn from Home

Seek support from deaf-centered mental health services.

The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center offers a list of resources on the topic of mental health, wellness, and social emotional development for deaf children and adolescents.

The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) offers a resource page with advocacy information on obtaining culturally affirmative and linguistically accessible mental health services for deaf children.

For more information on challenges deaf people face with mental health care see NDC’s Mental Health & Well-Being page.
