About the Project
We believe that holistic therapy needs to be at the forefront of humanitarian crises and any delay in treatment will cause harm. Because of that, we launched our Online Clinic in December 2017.
HCOC is a network that we run that consists of mental health professionals who are willing to provide online support to displaced populations around the world through the Web(Teletherapy).
Through our online clinic, we are able to reach people who are suffering and do not have access to mental health support whether it is due to the lack of mental health professionals in the field, language barriers, and/or geopolitical restrictions.
Moreover, the importance of continuity in therapy is a fundamental component in psycho-social support and our online clinic is one of the ways for us to continue our support for vulnerable cases that may have relocated to different locations.
Furthermore, the remote work we do through our clinic enables more professionals who cannot volunteer on the ground and are from different geographical locations and cultures to provide intercultural support without any boundaries.
