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

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Community mental health and substance abuse services are available to people who are deaf, hard of hearing or deaf-blind from culturally competent treatment professionals  who are sign language fluent.  Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Deaf-Blind consumers access these services through the LMEs. (Deaf or Hard of Hearing callers: Please connect to your preferred VRS/TRS provider, then call the LME.)  Inpatient mental health and substance abuse services are provided at Broughton Hospital in Morganton.

The Division also supports the Mental Health Advisory Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Members are named by the Division director. The group meets four times a year to advise the Division on the needs of people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Assistive technology and interpreting are used. For more information on this council, please contact Brad Trotter.
