There is growing awareness of unmet need and deficiencies in services for deaf people with mental health problems, but a paucity of systematic evaluation to underpin service development. The purpose of this study was to identify and assess all residential facilities that provide services to deaf people with mental health problems, and to elicit detailed information on the demography, clinical characteristics and service needs of the residents. A survey carried out in 1996 identified all establishments providing residential care for deaf people with mental health problems.
