Abstract
This report describes some of the methods being developed at Southcentral Foundation to get practical information so that more culturally sensitive and effective mental health services can be provided. The report gives some general introduction and background and then presents some clinical case material in detail. Every effort is made to get the exact words of the client, in their Native language. There is extensive discussion between mental health professionals and cultural mentors as to what the illness narratives mean, and best ways to help. Samples are given of some of the comments that emerged from this dialogue process, including some beginning description of Yup'ik concepts about mental health.
