The Palestine Counselling Centre (PCC)
The Palestinian Counselling Centre was established in Jerusalem by a group of psychologists, sociologists, and educational experts in 1983 to develop and improve mental health concepts and services in Palestine.
The PCC is historically one of the leading mental health voluntary organisations in Jerusalem. There are branches in most of the main cities in the West Bank. Staff are committed to delivering counselling and psychological therapies as well as educational, clinical and training programmes.
The PCC’s main objectives are:
- To improve the psychological well-being of individuals suffering from mental illness that affects daily performance.
- To upgrade the capacity of individuals and institutions working in mental health.
- To contribute to the sustainability of the Centre through maintaining good governance principles and practice.
