Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to establish a culturally affirmative mental health recovery program for deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, and late-deafened individuals through a partnership with Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness, Inc. Deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind and late-deafened individuals may experience mental health concerns unlike those of their hearing counterparts due to communication barriers and marginalization experienced by this community. Access to mental health services is a major concern for this population and this program will help ease such barriers. The project, through grant funding, will allow deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind, and late-deafened individuals a means of access to mental health recovery services. The S. Mark Taper Foundation was identified as a potential funder during a search through a nonprofit partnership database. The grant was not required to be submitted or funded in order to meet the requirements of this project.
