GHI members listed in the directory are seen by 50,000 English speakers throughout Israel.


The GHI website averages 20,000 page views per month. GHI's annual Mental Health Directory is seen by approximately 50,000 English-speakers throughout Israel. GHI is highly regarded and used by major organizations that work with English-speakers, Klita/Absorption offices, over 50 seminaries and yeshivas and other GAP year programs. They recognize GHI as the only diverse and comprehensive organization that verifies professional credentials and therefore refer solely to the GHI database of professionals when they seek English language mental health services.
1. The GHI website has excellent search engine optimization (SEO), so when clients search online for mental health services, GHI comes up on the first pages of search results.

2. We have ads in all major English-speaking publications around the country. (If there’s a publication in which you don’t see GHI, please email us at [email protected] and we’ll make sure to get an ad in there).

3. Our most important referral source is word of mouth. Thousands of clients have successfully found the right help through GHI, and they recommend us to friends and relatives. In addition, our mental health professionals, who understand the importance of professional qualifications in a therapist, solely refer clients, friends, and family to other GHI members.

4. We meet with partnering organizations who work with English-speakers to inform them of what we do. They appreciate having a reliable Association to which they can refer clients who need help. Hard copies of the GHI directories are used as a resource in their waiting rooms and offices.

5. Mental health professionals and organizations abroad are being informed about GHI and use our online resource to refer clients who are moving to Israel.
