Amcha: mental health care at the Netanya Center and at home
Founded in 1987, Amcha is the biggest Israeli organization offering survivors and their families psychological and social support and providing psychological follow-up at home.
It has 15 centers where clinical psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists and other therapists provide mental health care. They also organize social reinsertion programs, intergenerational activities, Holocaust commemorations and celebrations of Jewish holidays.
