The Ministry of Health has called on mental health practitioners willing to offer online counselling services during these challenging times to sign up and assist.
Our valued Practitioners,
In light of the Corona Virus-induced crisis, as mental health practitioners, you have a critical service to offer to the needy so as to enhance their mental wellbeing. The Department of Mental Health in the Ministry of Health and Child Care is therefore calling upon qualified practitioners such as Counsellors, Clinical Social Workers, Psychologists and Interns willing to offer Online psychosocial support and E-Counselling services during this critical period.
If interested, kindly indicate through your Association.Ministry of Health
For interested practitioners, you can express that interest to the following organisations;
- Psychologists: Zimbabwe Psychological Association (ZPA): Innocent Sifelani 0773662209 or firstname.lastname@example.org;
- Counsellors: Zimbabwe Association of Family Therapists and Professional Counsellors (ZAFTPC): Shupikai Zebron, 0773920028 or email@example.com;
- If you are not yet affiliated to an association, or registered with Allied Health Practioners Council of Zimbabwe (AHPCZ), contact Mufaro Chimbindi 0771056413 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a great initiative and I hope the Ministry and all other involved parties can find a way to bring this initiative to WhatsApp and reach as many Zimbabweans as they can during this time of crisis and confusion.
