Language Assistance Toolkit
This toolkit takes a practical approach to addressing language proficiency and multilingualism in behavioral healthcare, as well as the cultural aspects of language and how these issues can impact health disparities. The toolkit also provides sample tools and assessments that can be easily adapted, as well as vignettes to examine potential challenges with interpretation and service delivery for people with limited English proficiency. The content emphasizes not only the importance of language, but also of cultural competence related to language access.
Health Beliefs Toolkit
This toolkit provides behavioral health agencies and their partners a guide to taking the individual and family cultural perspective when delivering BH. There is no “one size fits all” method that is culturally relevant for all individuals and treatments. However, this toolkit is a step towards a more culturally competent perspective in approaching and treating individuals seeking BH, including addressing the religion and faith of the individual, as well as support networks, attitudes on causes and treatment of illness, language barriers, and socioeconomic status.
