Telemental Health for Deaf and
Hard of Hearing

Diversity and inclusion are core values at Arundel Lodge. We employ Deaf and hearing staff who are knowledgeable about the needs of Deaf and hard-of-hearing community members and who are fluent in American Sign Language (ASL).

We support participation in our behavioral health programs and services, including the Outpatient Mental Health Clinic, Supported Employment Program, Day Program, and Residential Program.

For residents of the Eastern Shore who are deaf or hard of hearing, Arundel Lodge provides telemental health therapy with a therapist fluent in sign language and culturally competent in the challenges faced by members of the Deaf community.

In partnership with Maryland Agricultural Education & Rural Development Assistance Fund, we are able to expand our telemental health services to community members who are deaf or hard of hearing in other rural areas:

  • Receive clinic-based mental health therapy in American Sign Language (ASL) using videoconferencing
  • Receive home-based mental health services using your smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer
