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. :)

    • Hi Amy Welcome!  I am doing Level 1 at college at the moment so am new to BSL and am finding it very interesting. In answer to your questions: - How long do you spend on your practice a day?  2 to 4 hours a week on top of college - How do you try to remember things you have learnt?  When I get home I write down what I have learn in my language, for example: NAME ME: 2 finger salute and then point to chest HOW ARE YOU? 2 hand boob rub into flying thumbs up towards person - what is the best way to practice?  With family, in a mirror, on here... you will find your best method.  I think I'm still looking for mine! Good luck Monty
