Our Vision: A Palestinian society that respects human rights and in which people live in dignity, free of oppression, and feel that their well-being is promoted
Our Mission: To develop GCMHP as knowledge-based institution to enhance the capacity of the community in dealing with mental health problems based on the principles of justice, humanity, and respect for human rights.
Our Strategy: To develop the mental well-being of Palestinian community through working with three major target groups: children, women, and victims of organized violence.
The Gaza Community Mental Health Programme (GCMHP) is a Palestinian non-governmental, non-profit organization established in 1990 to provide comprehensive community mental health services - therapy, training and research - to the population of the Gaza Strip.
Since that time, the Gaza Strip - one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with two thirds of the population being refugees and 50% being younger than 16 years - has witnessed extreme forms of violence and suffering, due to Israeli occupation and military operations. This made the extent of mental health problems in the Gaza reach unprecedented levels.
