Historical Overview of Inpatient Care of Mental Patients Who Are Deaf.
Vernon, McCay; Daigle-King, Beth
American Annals of the Deaf, v144 n1 p51-61 Mar 1999
Analysis of published studies of deaf mentally ill inpatients indicates a greater overall prevalence of mental illness in the deaf population than in the general population. Characteristic symptoms leading to hospitalization of deaf people tend to be different from those of hearing patients. For both hearing and deaf patients, dual diagnosis (mental illness and substance abuse) is increasingly common. (Author/DB)
