Everyone deserves a meaningful life
Ipso advocates for mental health care and psychosocial counseling (MHPSS) worldwide – easy accessible and non-judgemental. Our counseling services are open to all people, regardless of origin, faith or gender, and support them in stressful situations.
In order to promote peace and reconciliation, we combine our offer with the support of local culture and cultural dialogue. At the same time, we work structurally on concepts for sustainable psychosocial health care in our project countries. Research and evaluation are mandatory to us in order to constantly develop and ensure the quality of our services.
Since 2008, Ipso has been primarily involved in Afghanistan. Likewise, the Ipso consulting approach has been successfully applied in Haiti, Sri Lanka, China, Lebanon, Jordan, Northern Syria, Northern Iraq as well as Ukraine. Since 2015, Ipso has also been training people in Germany as intracultural counselors.We implement ourselves and are very happy to support other organizations with our expertise.
