recover from the Artsakh war and to rebuild a better future for the youth!

Services are considered field based- in which the therapists will meet the client where they are at whether they are in a hospital setting, shelter, military base, community clinic or even in the home.

    WHAT WE DO

    Frontline Therapists aims to provide volunteer based therapists to fill in the gaps of therapeutic services wherever needed, including hospital settings, military bases, villages, shelters and anywhere else the need may rise. While mental health services have been steadily increasing and the stigma towards accessing these services have been shifting in Armenia, the current level of service and capacity does not meet the needs of the Armenian community. With the support of volunteer therapists, we aim to support the Armenian therapeutic community to serve the people. Frontline Therapists also would like to be a beacon of resource, by providing trainings and supervisory opportunities for Armenian therapists as well as psychoeducation to the community as a whole with trauma informed education.
