Check out this list of NJ “mega sites” which offer accommodations for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Emotional Support for Those Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Hard of Hearing, who are captioned-phone users, may call the NJ Mental Health Association. 1-866-202-4357 and TTY is 877-294-4356.
If the person has coronavirus and hearing loss intertwined, please call ACCESS at 973-754-5595 MON – FRI | 9AM – 5PM
Liz Hill, Director of NJDDHH, noted that most online websites have a chatbox feature you can type communicating with their service providers.
If you have found a local therapist using a virtual service for a long-term therapeutic treatment and would like to have a captioning service, you can contact NJDDHH to coordinate with a captionist.
To request counseling services in ASL, you may email to UckarC@sjhmc.org. The director will assess needs and forward it to the appropriate counselor or therapist at ACCESS.
