New grant, new focus: CATIE Center Mental and Behavioral Health Interpreting project

Join the CATIE Center at St. Catherine University on a first-class journey launching a 5-year project to increase the number and diversity of trained, credentialed behavioral health interpreters.

Our first year, 2017, focused on program development:

  • Developing introductory webinars and online courses on topics in mental health interpreting, interpreting in settings impacted by chemical dependency, addiction and recovery, and domestic and sexual violence. The webinars and online courses will serve as a gateway to further training in these specialized areas.
  • Supporting interpreters working towards the Qualified Mental Health Interpreter (QMHI) credential.
  • Building a partnership with the Alabama Department of Mental Health, Office of Deaf Services’ Mental Health Interpreter Training Institute, and exploring ways to promote their stellar program.
