2019 Mental Health Programme “Connect Us Too”

On Friday 12 April 2019 deafscotland, Deaf Links and ITV SignPost will be launching a series of related accessible video clips in British Sign Language (BSL) with subtitles and voiceover, introducing some key information from the See Me Campaign about mental health and wellbeing for Deaf and Deafblind people in Scotland.

The videos are designed to breakdown the stigma of mental health and encourage Deaf people to talk to others, whether Deaf or hearing, about how they are feeling and to build resilience. For many Deaf people their first or only language is BSL. This will be the first time such information has been fully accessible to them and very importantly presented to them by their peers.
