Health and wellbeing

Improving the health and wellbeing of Deaf sign language users has been a core theme in our research work for the past 10 years. This includes evidence-based evaluations of interventions, development and validation of standard instruments in BSL, and the development and testing of new service provision.


Our work has focussed on primary mental health care, common mental health problems and dementia. The titles of the relevant research projects are listed below and you click on each to be taken to its detailed description, its major academic outputs, and its general resources for service users and service providers. Access to the BSL standard psychological/health instruments can be found in the Resources section.
