The Peer Recovery CoE is pleased to share Increasing Accessibility with Translation & Interpretation Services Toolkit. With the growing number of those with limited English proficiency (LEP), substance use disorder and mental health facilities would benefit from providing extensive language services. Expanding language services increases inclusivity and care volume. The relationship between a peer support worker and a peer is the foundation to effective treatment and recovery support. To provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to people with LEP, we outlined steps you can take to plan and implement translation and interpretation services.
