Mental Health Services


DeafLEAD offers free mental health services to Deaf, hard of hearing, DeafBlind and late-deafened victims and their families. It is not uncommon for individuals that have been victims of crime to experience emotional distress or to experience the following problems:

            Symptoms of depression

            Feelings of low self-worth


            Anger management problems

            Social anxiety

            Issues with sleeping




DeafLEAD provides a safe, therapeutic environment that is culturally and linguistically appropriate for Deaf, hard of hearing, late-deafened and DeafBlind individuals to explore the issues they’ve been managing and set goals to help foster the changes needed to improve the quality of their lives.

Stop the Violence.
