Decisions are made every day about deaf people’s lives without involving deaf people. This needs to change. The lived experience and knowledge of deaf community members must guide policy changes, strategic planning, and programs that are designed to reduce barriers and increase opportunities for deaf people in the United States. Listening to community members, and letting them lead the way, is important. This is a core value of the work we do at the National Deaf Center (NDC).
This course is free and open to all. It is a self-paced professional development online course designed for professionals, community members, transition counselors, interpreters, and anyone interested in learning about creating a mentoring program.
Mientras atravesamos las crisis del 2020, la salud y la seguridad son la prioridad de todos. Sin embargo, mientras tomamos medidas para proteger la salud física de la población, la salud mental es igualmente importante. La incertidumbre, el aislamiento y un entorno en constante cambio pueden pasar factura, lo que resulta en agotamiento, fatiga y episodios de depresión o ansiedad.
In this pandemic, health and safety is at the forefront of almost everyone’s mind. However, as we take measures to protect the physical health of the population, mental health is equally as important. Isolation, uncertainty, and a constantly changing environment can take a toll, resulting in burn-out, fatigue, and episodes of depression or anxiety.
