Welcome to Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deaf-Blind Well-Being Program website!

The Well-Being Program (WBP) provides Mental Health Services for Deaf, Hard of Hearing & Deaf-Blind people throughout the province of British Columbia.

On this website, you will find information about WBP and its services.

Below is the video explaining the changes that are coming to WBP.

Currently, Kristen Pranzl is on maternity leave so you can contact Alison Nutt.



The VCH Deaf Well-Being Program (WBP) hosts workshops and events primarily for Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind individuals (and their family members) that focus on empowerment, self-development, and life skills enhancement. Workshops have the goal of empowering those in the audience with opportunities for self-analysis  to enhance personal growth.

These community workshops and events often provide access to information Deaf community members would not have otherwise.

Find upcoming events listed in our Calendar.

Mental Health in ASL

The Deaf Well-Being Program produces high quality educational and informative videos for the enrichment of the community that you can watch here.

The goal of these videos are for greater understanding of common mental health terms and their meaning.

Each video produces a staff person defining and explaining the word in American Sign Language (ASL), with voiceover, and captioning.

Some common phrases used in mental health settings will also be built into this directory of videos for your benefit.
