A new program was launched to support Australians with hearing impairments to seek for mental health treatment.

Developed by Expression Australia and supported by Eastern Health in Melbourne, the program includes Auslan cards which will help patients to obtain better treatment.
The program will not replace an interpreter, and it will help staff to find the best course of action as soon as possible.
