Healing the Spirit, Instilling Hope

The Gaza Mental Health Foundation condemns in the strongest terms the ongoing destruction inflicted on Gaza’s families. The mental and physical trauma caused to more than 2 million people, half of them children, is devastating.

Our Foundation has partnered for the past 21 years with The Gaza Community Mental Health Programme (GCMHP) in Gaza City, which is maintaining a fully staffed hot line to help parents deal with the tremendous stress they and their children are facing.

In Scientific American, GCMHP head Yasser Abu Jamei describes why “a new mental health crisis is raging in Gaza“.
