Elysium Sponsor Deaf Mental Healthcare Conference: Working with Cultural and Linguistic Challenges 12th – 13th September


Elysium Healthcare are proud partners of Salford University in producing the International Deaf Conference. The two day conference will be held at The Lowry, Manchester and will be presented in both English and British Sign Language.

Mental health in the ethnic and diverse population, particularly involving the deaf community, receives minimal resources and public awareness – Deaf Mental Health Care: Working with Cultural and Linguistic Challenges Conference will help your organisation address and rationalise by practically applying the aspects of specialised assessment and adapted treatments in sensory impairment.

The agenda will be centralised predominately around the acclaimed teaching of Dr Neil Glickman and his therapy in deafness and mental health. As well as this, leading psychotherapy experts will also take to the stage to discuss the stigma and discrimination of mental health and deafness and the opportunity we all have to enhance communication and awareness surrounding the culture and linguistic aspects of deafness.

The conference aims to bridge the gap of teaching the specialist knowledge and skills necessary to enable a broader understanding of this specialised field. Delegates will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest developments, learn about the emerging adapted programmes as well as understand how the sector will transform in the next five to ten years.
