Frequently Asked Questions
The GHI website averages 25,000 page views per month. GHI's annual Mental Health Resource Guide 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, and embassies of English-speaking countries. 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. Our most important referral source is word of mouth. Thousands of clients have successfully found the right help through GHI, and they recommend it to friends and relatives. In addition, GHI members who understand the importance of professional qualifications in a therapist, solely refer clients, friends, and family to other GHI members.
  3. 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 GHI's Mental Health Resource Guide are referenced as a resource in their waiting rooms and offices.
  4. Mental health professionals and organizations abroad are aware of GHI and use our online resource to refer clients who are moving to Israel.
  5. GHI has a strong social media presence including an active Facebook group called Find a Therapist.
As of January of 2021, GHI has over 300 members and is growing daily.
Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, addictions specialists, sex therapists, art therapists, and play therapists, must have a post-graduate degree (MA equivalent or higher) in mental health from an accredited university with appropriate practicum experience.

In addition, Psychologists must be licensed by Misrad Habriut, and social workers must be registered as a social worker in Israel.
