Participants will become familiar with the 7 elements of a mental status exam and will be able to name and define the sections. In addition, the webinar will explore the key differences between interpreting in a psychiatric setting versus other medical settings. Participants will also learn about the unique challenges of interpretation in each of the areas of the mental status exam and will acquire the tools necessary to meet the challenges of interpreting in mental health settings.
