Support our BSL fundraiser to translate our latest training course

Did you know over 150,000 people use British Sign Language (BSL) as their primary or preferred language in the UK?

Deaf or hard of hearing students were more likely than hearing college students to have seriously considered suicide or attempted suicide in their lifetime, according to research (Fox, M. L., James, T. G., & Barnett, S. L. (2020). 

A separate study found that up to half of the deaf community in Britain experience mental health problems, with rates of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem almost double that of hearing people.  

That’s why we’d like your support to help raise £6,500 so we can translate our latest training course – Autism and Suicide Awareness Training – into BSL.

The fundraiser started with £115 that was kindly donated by people who joined the launch webinar for the training. 

You can be a part of making a BSL accessible version of our training by donating online.

The Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) is hosted by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and funded via Mersey Cares NHS Charity (registration number 1191576)
