NC Department of Health and Human Services Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Through contractual relationships, DMH/DD/SAS provides specialized out-patient mental health and substance abuse services statewide for deaf, hard of hearing and deaf-blind consumers of all ages. Culturally and linguistically appropriate services are provided by clinicians and outreach workers who are fluent in sign language. The Division also operates a specialized in-patient unit for individuals who are deaf and need inpatient psychiatric or substance abuse services. The in-patient unit is located at Broughton Hospital in Morganton.

The Mental Health Advisory Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MHAC) meets quarterly. MHAC members are appointed by the Director of DMH/DD/SAS. The Council advises the Division on the development and provision of services to consumers who are deaf, hard of hearing or deaf-blind.
