Services in Auslan
You may wonder why providing services in Auslan is important to us; in fact, it is our passion. On a daily basis, deaf people face barriers not only to communication but also access to many services that most of us take for granted. This is even more so for those who use Auslan as their primary language. As an accomplished Deaf woman, Karli intimately understands these barriers. She uses Auslan as her primary language and knows the unique aspects of Deaf community and culture.
Karli Health Centre is registered with the NDIS, so it is possible to include in your plan services provided by us. Not sure about what the NDIS is or what to do? Click here to view a video in Auslan about the NDIS or contact us, we will be happy to explain more to you.
Partnership with Stop Deaf Suicide and Signpedia
Stop Deaf Suicide aims to remove the barriers Australia’s Deaf community face in accessing mental health and suicide prevention services.
Stop Deaf Suicide’s first initiative, a conference bursary program, focuses on improving the professional development opportunities for Deaf and Hard of Hearing people working in mental health and suicide prevention, and raising awareness of Deaf mental health and suicide prevention among the mainstream suicide prevention sector.
The conference bursary program launched in 2018 and so far has supported 5 Deaf and Hard of Hearing people to attend the National Suicide Prevention Conference, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference and the World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference.
Signpedia partnered with us last year (2018) to provide counselling for their deaf clients who are missing out accessible counselling services in their own states. Signpedia provides tailored and individualised services for Deaf people, their families and friends, to enable learning of life skills, confidence and independence.
In late December 2018 Facebook/Good2Give funded KHC to provide a number of training workshops this years 2019 for our DBV volunteer leaders to learn how to lead safe and fun monthly walks for the Deaf and hard of hearing community.
