The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority Funds WARM

The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority awarded a Partnership Grant to WARM. This grant, housed in Catholic Social Services Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services (RAIS) will allow WARM mental health practitioners to access free telephonic interpretation services if they do not speak their refugee or asylee client’s language. These qualified interpreters are through LanguageLink. We are thrilled to be able to address the most frequent barrier to providing mental health care that practitioners report through the generous support of The Trust. Please reach out to Dr. Sara Buckingham at sbuckingham@alaska.edu if you serve a client through WARM and are in need of this new service.
