We work to raise general awareness of mental health, symptoms of trauma, and positive coping methods through radio programs, door-to-door campaigns, and group training sessions.
Training Community Counselors
We train local volunteers to provide basic mental health support that does not require specialist intervention and to refer those experiencing more severe symptoms of trauma to Invisible Children psychologists and other specialists. Volunteers are equipped with tools for providing Psychological First Aid, peer support, and basic stress management strategies.
Providing One-on-One Trauma Counseling
Trained Invisible Children psychologists partner with local health centers, hospitals, and civil society to provide specialized care to people experiencing severe symptoms of trauma.
Invisible Children provides trauma awareness and Community Counselor training to communities and partners with local hospitals and health centers in eastern Central African Republic (CAR) and northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
