About Our Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Health Education Program

 

Our Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Health Education Program is a free service for DDBDDHHLD communities. Our educational and health advocacy services are offered to a wide range of groups and individuals at Family Tree Clinic, the metro area and throughout the state of Minnesota. Our programming aims to positively influence sexual health by helping clients feel comfortable with their bodies, confident in their knowledge, and powerful in their decision making abilities. All our presentations align with the National Health Education Standards and National Sexual Education Standards.

Sexuality is a natural component of humanity and that every person experiences sexuality from birth to death. All people have the right to education about sexuality, sexual health care, and sexual expression. Access to sexuality education is a human right. Deaf, DeafBlind, DeafDisabled, Hard of Hearing and Late-Deafened (DDBDDHHLD) individuals are often overlooked. Through language deprivation and inaccessibility, our community members are often deprived of their rights to be fully informed and that has affected their ability to be educated about and understand their sexual health. 

It should not be a luxury to be able to understand one’s sexual health. We aim to break down barriers to services and information. We value access to fact-based information for people of all ages that is accurate, up-to-date, confidential, and relevant. All members in DDBDDHHLD communities deserve access to confidential health care services and information.

SAY 'HELLO' TO OUR WONDERFUL TEAM!

Our program is the only one like it in the state and the entire country that provides comprehensive sexual health educational and health advocacy services for DDBDDHHLD communities.
