NOTIS’s Community Interpreters Division presents:

Interpreting in Mental Health
Presented by Yuliya Speroff

Join our workshop to equip interpreters with the essential knowledge and skills needed to navigate the complex landscape of mental health care, ensuring effective communication and support for the over 51 million U.S. adults experiencing mental health disorders.

What is it about? 
In the United States, over 51 million adults experience mental health disorders, emphasizing the critical role interpreters play in facilitating effective communication in mental health settings. 

Throughout this workshop, participants will gain insights into several key areas:

  • Understanding where mental health services are provided and who delivers them, ensuring interpreters are familiar with the landscape of mental health care.

  • Learning about  common mental health disorders, common diagnostic tools and treatment options for mental health disorders, equipping interpreters with terminology and concepts necessary for accurate interpretation.

  • Identifying various encounters interpreters may face in mental health settings, from therapy sessions to psychiatric evaluations, to ensure preparedness for diverse scenarios.

  • Recognizing and addressing the unique challenges interpreters may encounter in mental health settings, such as managing emotional dynamics and navigating sensitive conversations, and interpreting when standardized tests are administered.

  • Understanding how interpreting in mental health settings differs from other contexts, and how this may affect the interpreter’s performance and practice.
