Trauma and Mental Health Support

URGENT NEED: Israel is now facing an epidemic of trauma, especially among children and frontline responders. This requires immediate and long-term mental health support for hundreds of thousands of people.


  • Providing therapy to pre-school and school children with acute trauma across Israel’s South.
  • Training frontline responders — teachers, social workers, and volunteers — in psychosocial support skills to manage widespread fear and stress among all Israelis, as well as their own trauma.
  • Launching a website ( that provides access to available mental health services, with options to filter by location, language, type of trauma, psychological service, and more.
