Research Digests


Last updated 10 June 2020

The most recent study of mental health in deaf children in England showed that 26% in a sample of 144 signing deaf children and young people not currently accessing child mental health services had a probable mental health problem and 57% had a possible mental health problem (Roberts et al, 2015).

This collection of Research Digests contains content from ACAMH’s two main academic outputs the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

Individual digests are presented below in date order, with the most recent first.

The Bridge had an edition dedicated to Mental Health in Deaf Children in May 2020.
