The London Assembly Health Committee would like to understand the challenges faced by Deaf and disabled people in accessing mental health support in London. The Committee will use your responses and their findings to make recommendations, and influence the Mayor and the London Health Board’s mental health plans.
“Around 14 per cent of adult Londoners have a disability – [this is] around 1.1 million people. Studies have shown that Deaf and disabled people are more likely to experience common mental health problems, especially anxiety and depression [when compared to the wider population].”
If you or the person you care for is deaf or has a disability, please complete this survey to share your experience and views: Mental Health Needs of deaf and disabled people.docx
