A task force made up of human services consumers and advocates, representatives from human services providers, representatives from state and local governments, educators and members of the deaf and hard of hearing communities has updated its online resource guide, the Southwestern Pennsylvania Resource Guide of Behavioral Health Providers for Persons who are Deaf, Deafblind or Hard of Hearing.

This resource guide lists regional behavioral health care providers that have experience working with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. Additionally, the guide can also benefit physicians, audiologists, behavioral health care providers and the general public.

The resource guide is available for download on the Allegheny County Department of Human Services website and on the website for the Behavioral Health Task Force for Persons who are Deaf, Deafblind and Hard of Hearing of Allegheny County.
