Mental Health Recovery and Rehabilitation Services for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Populations
A special program in consideration of the mental health services for deaf and hard of hearing individual bill of rights act. The ASC treatment group as long held that all individuals, regardless of circumstance or disability, deserve every agency's best effort. Long a leader in the development of innovation and service – we provide highly individualized residential services, in a community setting, on a 24 hours a day, seven days a week basis.
In keeping with this mission we have recognized that interest in mental health specialty services for hearing impaired persons has expanded over the 35 years we have been working. Unfortunately, the availability and accessibility of clinical services have lagged behind. Despite federal mandates, deaf Americans psychiatric and psychosocial needs appear to remain profoundly underserved.
Receiving residential treatment services which are effective and need-based can be very challenging – and especially challenging for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. As a function of the opportunity to provide services to special individuals, some of whom are hearing impaired, ASC has been working to develop a specialized program to meet these clients needs. In doing so we recognize the special challenges clients face when agencies are not prepared to provide services to them without staff who are properly trained and prepared to meet their needs, in their own language, and in keeping with the frustrations which are profoundly compounded by illness. We recognized further that direct communication for clients, in their language or a mode of communication that is accessible is always preferred.
In the ASC treatment group specialty services program for the hearing impaired, we have deaf staff on-site to assist with sign communication and daily rehabilitation and recovery needs. We provide support and assistance in navigating mainstream society helping residents access mental health recovery and realization opportunities afforded the hearing population. We promote self-determination and self-sufficiency within the client's desired mainstream life.
At ASC are hearing impaired residents live in a supportive atmosphere amongst peers, but receive staff services and oversight is determined by the individual residents needs and functioning level. Each residence care is overseen by our interdisciplinary treatment team which includes: the resident, the administrator, case management, therapeutic and psychiatric service providers, a nurse and family members. In addition, we collaborate with outside service providers as needed.
For all individuals mental health recovery programming goals may include:
