Yes: Hearing is an important tool and an imprtant sense. Hearing loss could lead to depression but it may be treatable. Consults with neurologists, ent, and a speech therapist to DX and treat the problem are important. Aconsult with a psychiatrist or psychologist if depression continues is recommended.
