Psychosocial online counseling during the Corona crisis

Berlin, Germany

We do not leave people alone with the psychological burdens of the Corona crisis. They can talk to us online about their concerns - free of charge in their own native language. With your donation we can help even more people.

About this project

The Corona crisis is unsettling people. We offer a free contact point for their worries. In 15 languages.

The Corona Crisis is a major psychological challenge. In addition to the fear of the virus there are feelings of helplessness, loneliness due to social isolation and worries about the future. Right now many people need psychosocial support.

At IPSO - International Psychosocial Organisation we have been working for years to ensure that everyone in a difficult life situation has access to a trustful psychosocial counseling session. As a reaction to the Corona crisis, we have set up additional free video consultation hours in 15 languages at www.ipso-care.com to offer counseling to people in this difficult time whenever they need it.

Our counselors from 14 countries provide culturally sensitive psychosocial support at eye level and in the native language of their clients - the method developed by IPSO founder Inge Missmahl is called Value Based Counselling (VBC). Every day, our counselors help people who want to talk about the distress caused by the current lockdown and the fear of the pandemic.

Psychosocial counseling that normally takes place on site - e.g. in refugee accommodation - is currently also being transferred to our online platform. In addition, cooperation partners refer their clients to us because they are unable to provide their own services due to the regulations that apply during the pandemic.

With your donation you will help us to offer as many people as possible a place for their concerns during the Corona crisis. Right now every Euro counts to cover the increasing need for psychosocial counseling.

Many thanks for your support!
