Mental Health-related signs

Recommended Posts

Within the Deaf community you probably wouldn't use the diagnostic terminology but would tend to describe the symptoms. Having said that there are signs for psychosis, schizophrenia, anxiety and many other mental health related words/terminology but these might not be well known and used.

Have a look at the attached, it's from a very old book and as I said, many BSL users won't be familiar with them.

Ok, thank you.

I suppose if you're talking about being diagnosed with something you could also spell it as you sign the symptoms. Then if you're talking to a friend and the term comes up a lot you could create a sign for it as one would a name. (or use the guide you so kindly attached)

Thank you very much. :)
