"ESTABLISHES THE LEVEL OF BEST PRACTICE"
Neil Glickman said of Alabama's mental health interpreters that, “[T]he sophistication of these interpreters in mental health not only meets the level of best practice, it establishes it.” This is high praise from one of the world’s leading experts in Deaf Mental Health Care. It is not mere chance that Alabama is home to a program that garners such praise. It is the result of years of planning and work that has gone into building a stellar mental health interpreting program.
