Information Sheet 14 To Be Released Next Week

We are set to release our latest Information Sheet - entitled Mental Health, Deafness and Hearing Loss - next week.

There are 534,000 people in Wales with some form of hearing loss and our 14th Information Sheet will cover the impact of hearing loss on mental health.

People with hearing loss are at an increased risk of mental health problems including anxiety, depression and poor

By 2031 the number of people with hearing problems is set to grow to 725,000 so it is a subject which GPs and primacy care practitioners across the country really need to understand.

Like all our Information Sheets this latest document aims to help raise awareness about and improve mental health services across the country and will be publised on this News & Events Blog and our site on Monday.

Their publication comes under the set objectives of our Gold Standard Project which has set the goal of providing good communication on mental health issues.

We have a range of other Information Sheets which are all available to download from our Information Sheets page.

If you have any questions about Information Sheets or trouble viewing or downloading them please contact our Project Manager Lesley Hills via email at or on 029 2050 4516.
