Mental Health in Venezuela

Venezuela

In Venezuela, we provide mental healthcare to victims of urban violence in the capital, Caracas, and the country’s second largest city, Maracaibo.

Our teams in Caracas started providing services in two of the city’s most dangerous neighboirhoods, Petare and La Vega, in mid-2016. We now operate from one of the main public hospitals in the city and receive referrals from the surrounding region.

Our psychologists provide individual mental health consultations, and during these sessions, they often detect and address cases of sexual violence.

We advocate considering sexual violence a medical emergency and treating it in a comprehensive way, which combines medical and psychological care.
