Title: Glossary of Mental Health Terms - part 1 (PDF file) (Links to English resource)
Summary: The development of the Glossary of Mental Health Terms has been initiated and co-ordinated by the Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre, Queensland Health. The primary aim of this publication is to assist interpreters and bilingual staff to familiarise themselves with mental health terminology in English, Italian, Chinese, Spanish and Vietnamese prior to an interpreting session. As such it does not represent a substitute for formal training, but merely constitutes an element of skill development. The Glossary contains the most commonly used mental health terms, both English - English and English - Chinese, Italian, Spanish and Vietnamese; and includes information on mental health services and relevant non-government resources available at the community level which could assist the reader to better understand structural aspects and complexities in the mental health sector.
