Can I ask if it’s possible for me to give deaf awareness training to David Cameron and all the political parties? I have been ill with depression for a long time, and I’m still seeing a counsellor.
I think it is time we told the politicians about deaf people. I want to write a letter to David Cameron to see if he and all the parties are interested in deaf awareness training. What do you think?
I am so sorry to hear about your ongoing depression. I know myself how difficult it is to deal with it. I am pleased you are seeing a counsellor – these things can and do take a very long time. I think the Government already knows about mental health and deaf people, as relevant organisations such as SignHealth remind them every now and then.
I know how frustrating it is when we feel the Government are not listening to us. I am not sure giving Deaf Awareness will help at all, though. We need to remind deaf charities what we want them to do for us. Let’s see what other people think. I am sure some will agree with you!
All the best and look after yourself.
