Get Help Israel -The Israel Association of Mental Health Professionals – serves a dual purpose. For clients who are seeking English-speaking mental health service providers, we are a trusted resource helping clients access the best services for their mental health needs. For English-speaking mental health professionals (including immigrant and veteran therapists alike) we provide a formal and friendly framework that seeks to advance professional development opportunities in English, and gives support and guidance in maintaining ethical, legal, and competent mental health services. Over the past 4 years, GHI has successfully ran national professional development workshops, as well as popular networking events that have helped create important professional connections. This year’s conference will integrate both professional development and networking components. We are excited to invite you to:
