More than one in three deaf people have reported struggling with their mental health because of the pandemic, according to a recent report by the deafness charity SignHealth. Christopher Reid, Director of Operations at SignHealth said: “We are very concerned that 35% of deaf respondents indicated that the pandemic has had a major negative impact on their mental health and 61% highlighting anxiety as what has impacted them most.” SignHealth is now appealing to the government to do more in regards to continued accessibility.
