SEED Foundation, in collaboration with Koya University through the Center for Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Services (MHPSS), is launching the Psychosocial Support Services (PSS) Training Program. Applications are now being accepted for sessions in April, May, October, and November. The PSS Training Program is an intensive training and supervision program building the skills of MHPSS providers in the Kurdistan Region to respond to today’s crisis and the mental health needs of tomorrow.

This program will train psychologists, social workers and other service providers in a six-month program, integrating four weeks of in-class instruction with ongoing supervision at their workplace. They will review critical elements of MHPSS services and learn to integrate new knowledge and skills into practice. Through interactive and experiential learning approaches, integrating lecture with discussion, role- playing, case studies, case presentations, videos, and group and independent projects, participants will be empowered to support their clients in the healing process.
