Specialized Interpreting: Mental Health webshop

Specialized Interpreting- Mental Health webshop

There is a shortage of qualified interpreters working in mental health settings.

Mental health issues arise in all aspects of a person’s life: employment, education, recreation, medical, etc. Often interpreters don’t 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 resources and educational opportunities to start building your skills for working in mental health settings.

This webshop was designed with Kate Block.

SLS COVID-19 Response:

We here at SLS highly value communication access. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected all of our lives. We are responding to these changes by maximizing safety while still prioritizing effective communication. We are happy to announce that SLS has adopted Virtual Video Interpreting (VVI) services. VVI services are available anywhere there is internet access, and in any setting where an interpreter is needed, such as school, court, hospital, doctor’s office, etc.

To all in our communities, we wish you to stay at home whenever possible, stay healthy, and stay safe! While we are still offering in-person interpreters as a last resort at this time, we want to partner with you in adhering to social distancing, and other suggested safe work practices. In this way we can all limit the risk to ourselves, to those in our households, and to those we work with. It is our sincere hope that we can successfully navigate this crisis together.

Let us provide you with interpreters for your SAFE appointments! Please click the tab and request further information on our VVI services.
