6th World Congress on Mental Health and Deafness

In September, 2014, Dr. Cathy Chovaz was invited to give a keynote address to the 6th World Congress on Mental Health and Deafness in Belfast, Ireland. To over 300 international delegates, Dr. Chovaz delivered an impactful presentation on the right to an accessible first language from birth for all d/Deaf children. Delegates were also able to explore this theory further during a panel presentation and a trip to the Jordanstown School for the Deaf. In addition, Dr. Chovaz, Judith Thomas and Angela Core submitted a poster presentation to the Congress on Intersectionality Theory and its utility in the field of mental health and d/Deafness in Ontario. We are very pleased that King’s University College holds an esteemed, international presence in the field of mental health and d/Deafness.
