mental health terms in Spanish
I'm doing a mental health assessment with a hispanic family today and was wondering if anyone could help me with some of the language of mental health: for example, "self-mutilating," "paranoid," "Suicidal thoughts", "racing thoughts," etc. Does anyone out there have any experience doing family therapy, or mental status exams that can help me with some of the vocabulary, as well as with tips for how to elicit this information without being culturally insensitive? Mil gracias, Pamela
suicidal thoughts= pensamientos de suicido
i guess racing thoughts...
Only one I know is paranoid = paranoico.
