SalusWorld (Volunteer Opportunity)
[From the web]
SalusWorld matches mental health professionals with international NGOs in need of psychosocial workers. They also provide pre-departure training for volunteers, and conduct workshops and support for those returning from international work. In addition, SalusWorld develops psychosocial projects in support of international humanitarian organizations, provides trauma training for mental health professionals, and offers mental health consultation.
SalusWorld volunteers put their ideals into practice working with SalusWorld in South Africa, Northern Thailand and Burma. Together with more than 200 locally-recruited volunteer counselors, they volunteer their skills and time to provide psychological support and training to people struggling to survive amid armed conflicts, natural disasters, environmental crises and epidemics. Whether in high-profile emergencies in the glare of the worlds' media, or in forgotten crises that never make the news, SalusWorld builds emotional and organizational support to community based organizations who are, and always have been, on the ground helping their own communities.
