Are you feeling down? Tap into the Power of Reframing!

  1. Because of the society that we live in and we are constantly on the go, it means we are more disconnected from ourselves. Especially with the added stress of a pandemic in our midst, we need to learn to slow down and rest. Here is How You Should Really Rest.

  2. National Deaf Therapy – Tending Intense Emotions

  3. Finding yourself flustered or overwhelmed throughout the day? Try this.

  4. Not sure how to process your feelings? You don’t have to numb, distract, shame or avoid them. In fact, feeling them can heal you. When you experience emotions: as yourself the four questions in this video – Feel Your Feelings.

  5. Did you know? Over 5 Million Deaf/HoH Americans need access to mental health care. Especially when it is a small, connected world. Check out the National Deaf Therapy and CDS partnership for more information.

    • Enhancing lives through empowerment and positive change
    • Offering national Deaf therapy services to all states in United States

  7. NBDA Team has fully recognized the importance of our Deaf community’s full access to information related the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been an overwhelming amount of COVID-19 related information shared on various social media platforms, TV, FB, IG, etc. It can be difficult to determine which information is accurate and fully presented with facts. NBDA has created a webpage dedicated as a resource for COVID-19.
