Resources for mental health practitioners working with interpretersWe launched a new suite of resources to support mental health practitioners working with interpreters in October 2019. The resources were developed in consultation with stakeholders as part of our Approaching work with interpreters in mental health settings project and include a new series of educational videos, available to view via our free online learning module or when participating in an advanced face-to-face the workshop.
'Working with interpreters always reminds me how important it is to be able to express oneself authentically, and in one's own language, and in one's own style' (Mental health practitioner).
