Specialized Interpreting: Mental Health

Mental health issues arise in all aspects of a person’s life; employment, education, recreation, medical etc. Often interpreters fail to recognize that they are in fact already working in mental health settings. This webshop guides you in assessing if mental health interpreting is within your scope of practice and connects you with a plethora of educational opportunities to start building your skills for working in mental health settings.

This webshop:

  • Defines mental health and mental illness.
  • Describes the varied settings within mental health interpreting, including: inpatient, outpatient, peer-led, day programs, private clinician offices, clinic settings, and emergency rooms.

Contributors: Kate Block, Arlyn Anderson, and the CATIE Center.

There is a shortage of qualified interpreters working in mental health settings, come find out how to become trained to fill that need.

*This webshop is not comprehensive, and will not make interpreters qualified to do this work, but will lay out a foundation and a path for future training.
