IAPT therapy for the Deaf Community
SignHealth has been awarded a national contract to deliver Talking Therapies for Deaf people in British Sign Language (BSL). This NHS contract provides NHS Talking Therapies (IAPT) through referrals so that Deaf people anywhere in England can access support. Deaf patients can still choose to access their local IAPT service with a BSL interpreter if they wish to do so. Our local service is offered through TalkPlus.
Mental health support is now easily accessible via the standard GP referral route or directly with SignHealth at signhealth.org.uk/therapy.
