Launching the Kurdistan Mental Health Project

January 2024 marked the launch of the the Kurdistan Mental Health Project. After three years of hard work we have launched the first year of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) training in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI). In partnership with Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (OCTC) and European Technology and Training Centre (ETTC) we have begun training 30 psychologists from a variety of KRI cities including Erbil, Duhok, Sulaymaniah, Halabja and Soran. Find out more about our initiative by clicking the link below.
