Updated Glossary of Mental Health terms for Interpreters

The Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre has recently updated the Glossary of Mental Health and Wellbeing Terms for Interpreters, Translators and Bicultural Workers (4th edition).

This glossary is for interpreters, translators, and bilingual staff who work with people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. It provides a list of commonly used terminology relating to mental health and wellbeing, mental health services, mental health and suicide prevention, and stigma reduction.

The updated glossary features terms that have been translated into 30 languages, following consultation with community members.

It also includes a brief introductory section on the mental health system in Queensland and expanded sections on mental health and suicide prevention, and stigma reduction terms.

It can be viewed on most devices including PC, phone and tablet and is available to be downloaded or printed.

Access the glossary through the QTMHC website.
