Challenge

Palestinian lives continue to be ended on a mass scale as well as the psychological foundations are at stake and the psycho-social wellbeing is severely compromised. People are traumatised, anxious, tense, depressed, chronically exhausted, paralysed, facing instability, lack of security and uncertainty every day.

Solution

In collaboration with Palestinian psychologists, theatre makers and youth caregivers, we have adopted a holistic approach to address the multifaceted trauma experienced by children, youth, and adults in Palestine. The campaign consists of four simultaneous approaches: art therapy interventions for children, psychology workshops, training of trainers, referrals to in-depth psychological support.

Long-Term Impact

The newly revised target of the campaign is to benefit 4000 children in Palestine alleviating effects of trauma, rebuilding psychological foundations and fostering resilience. It will create a space and capacity to continue emotional support in school-based environments as well as establish a network of trained facilitators able to expand the impact beyond this campaign. Another impact would be the increased awareness about mental health within the Palestinian society.
