Interpreter Support Group
Medical or legal, spoken or sign language, whatever the discipline, interpreters act as both witnesses and narrators of many aspects of trauma, which over time can impact mental health and emotional well-being.
This support group, led by a Medical Interpreter, will include share guidance related to stress and self-care as well as dedicated time to support each other, ask questions, and share experiences. Come to receive support, learn something new, or to support others!
