Clinical Services

The Deaf Wellness Center provides a variety of services, including clinical services to patients, Strong Connections video health interpreting services to hospitals across the country, as well as training and workshops (locally as well as internationally).

Clinical Service Mission

The Deaf Wellness Center provides direct psychiatric, psychological, and social services that are linguistically accessible, culturally affirmative, and effective in enhancing quality of life. We also provide consultation and advocacy to institute positive change in systems relevant to deaf and hard-of-hearing people. Our priorities include the development, application, and evaluation of innovative clinical service approaches, provision of services that support our research and training missions, and programs that address local and regional service inadequacies. We actively pursue cooperative ventures with public and private entities that can assist in achieving these clinical service goals.
