SignHealth offers a free Crisis Text Service to support deaf people anywhere in the UK. It is powered by Shout and their trained volunteers will respond by text at any time, 24/7.

If you are deaf and experiencing a crisis or struggling to cope, you can text DEAF to 85258. It might be abuse, self-harm, bullying, relationship issues or suicidal thoughts.
