What We Do
Founded in 2020, KR-UK-Impakt is a group of like-minded mental health professionals committed to improving mental health provision in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). The KRI and its people have suffered through decades of trauma, genocide, conflict, forced migration and isolation. However mental health services are in their infancy. We work with people who want to change that, to bring help and support to KR people who themselves have provided refuge and a sanctuary for others.
How We Help

Training People Who Can Help
Using best practice training to help young professionals succeed in the mental health space.
Building UK and KRI Academic Partnerships

Raising Awareness & Changing Minds
