Deaf Teens’ Mental Health

Human Rights & Health

Deaf teenagers experience communication challenges every day. Over 90% of deaf children are born into hearing families, this sometimes leads to parenting and educational challenges that have mental health consequences. School environments also play a pivotal role in their mental health, whether it be trying to fit in with others, being victims of bullying, misunderstanding lesson plans, having unproductive learning environments, or having insufficient resources. All of these factors have a great impact on the health and well-being of deaf teens. Through educating and bringing to light these issues to the hearing public, perspectives can be changed for the better as people are made aware.
