The Deaf Well-Being Program (WBP) provides mental health services to Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deaf-Blind people throughout BC. The WBP provides services for individuals, couples, children, youth, and families. The eligibility will be screened at intake appointments.

Our services are offered in-person and virtual. If needed, we will travel within BC.

Our Approach

The WBP is striving to adopt an “evidence based” approach in our service provisions.

What does that mean? It is when you come to the WBP for help, during the assessment process, we carefully listen and then we figure out the best possible therapeutic approach shown by research study results to be effective for your needs. For example, research shows that Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an effective intervention for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder.

It is important to understand that the WBP is responsible to make sure we provide the best possible services for you.


The services for all of BC include:

Child and Youth

Our services are both bilingual and bicultural to meet the needs of the deaf, hard of hearing and deaf-blind children and youth.
