Deaf People and Depression: “Every healthy Deaf person makes the Deaf community stronger”. This is the message of a public service announcement aimed at Deaf people. We couldn’t agree more. If you or someone you know is experiencing depression, there is no need to go through it alone, nor is there any shame in asking for help. Deaf counselors can make a difference!
Support for this project came from the American Psychiatric Foundation, the Ad Council of Rochester, Roberts Communications, Inc., Eastman Kodak Company and the Deaf Wellness Center (DWC). The public service announcement (created by the DWC) features the well-known Deaf actress, Linda Bove, and other Deaf professionals and actors.
