Telemental Health Services as a Targeted Intervention for Individuals who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing

ID: 3489
Status: Completed
Start date: October 2017

Description

Deaf and hard of hearing individuals who have chronic mental illness are a population that is underserved. Like their hearing counterparts with mental illness, individuals who are Deaf and hard of hearing often face medical and treatment disparities. The purpose of this paper is to propose the use of telemental health (TMH) services, or services provided via videoconferencing technology, as a targeted intervention that may provide relief to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals with mental health problems. This paper addresses several areas that are important when considering service provision to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals, including a working definition of TMH, clinical efficacy of TMH, the challenges and advantages of using TMH, and considerations for establishing a TMH service for Deaf and hard of hearing individuals.​
