Language Access

Icon for Language Access

The H/LBH CoE offers Language Access and Assistance to improve the capacity of the BH workforce to serve H/L populations with limited English proficiency. Our Center offers training for BH providers including training and technical assistance on interpreter services for Latines and developing products aimed at increasing access to bilingual services and support for Latine populations with B/H needs. 

Simultaneous translation services are available for webinars as well as for in-person events as needed. Our Language Access Resources Inventory identifies best practices in using mental health interpreters working with H/L and showcases bilingual providers available by the health region.

Coming soon will be a searchable index of organizations, programs, and materials that help provide language access - stay tuned for more soon.
