Introducing the Kelty Centre’s New Cross-Cultural Landing Page & Updated Language Pages

Meredith on June 19, 2014

Over the last few years, BC Mental Health & Substance Use Services has developed a number of cross-cultural and multilingual projects in an effort to support mental health literacy among culturally and linguistically diverse families in the province. Some examples include the Families, Together video & discussion guide, the adaptation & translation of the Healthy Living Toolkits for families, the translation of several mental health & substance use information / medication sheets, videos, and resources, and the cross-cultural Pinwheel Education Sessions in Farsi, Mandarin, and Cantonese, among others.

We are excited to announce that all of these wonderful resources can now be more easily located through a new landing page on the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre’s website:

In addition to being a good starting place to locate our cross-cultural and translated resources, the new cross-cultural landing page features:

  • resources that may be helpful to health professionals working with culturally and linguistically diverse families
  • a compiled list of all of our Pinwheel Education Series recordings on topics related to cross-cultural mental health or in different languages, and
  • upcoming child and youth mental health events that are related to cross-cultural mental health or in different languages.

This new landing page is easily accessible from the Kelty home page by pressing the ‘blue’ Cross-Cultural Mental Health button on the right hand side of the page.

We are also excited to share that the six language pages on the Kelty website are now re-designed and updated. The new language pages are accessible from the links at the top of the Kelty home page, or directly from the cross-cultural landing page. All of the language pages now feature:

  • translated information about the Kelty Centre & how to get in touch with us,
  • a translated search function to look up translated mental health and substance use resources available on the Kelty website,
  • a FAQ menu (What is mental health? What are mental health challenges & disorders? Where do I start if I am concerned about my child or youth’s mental health?),
  • a link to a translated ‘Find Help’ page which outlines how families can get help in both emergency and non-emergency situations
  • embedded translated Kelty videos,
  • information about how to order a translated Healthy Living Toolkit, and
  • upcoming child and youth mental health events happening across BC in that specific language.

We are quite excited about these new updates to the Kelty website and we encourage you to share these updates widely with your family, friends, and colleagues.  Please let us know about any upcoming cross-cultural or multilingual child & youth mental health events; we would be happy to promote them on our new pages.
