Mental Health & Deafness Resources is dedicated to the provision of intensive mental health and educational services to children, adolescents and adults who are deaf, hard of hearing or have communication disorders, complicated by emotional/behavioral disturbance or developmental delay.
The quality of care and sensitivity to the diverse needs of the individual in a culturally affirmative environment is of primary concern in all our endeavors.
