As we grieve for our community overseas, we need to ensure that we take care of our own health and strength to continue to support each other.
MAS-SSF would like to ask for your support during this difficult time. At this time, our Afghan Community needs extra support and aid from professionals. We would like to ask our dedicated community members, who are MH professionals, psychologists, and therapists, to consider joining our efforts to reach the community.
MAS-SSF specializes in peer support work and ensuring that community members are connected to compassionate and understanding professionals through our referral process. We were aiming to collaborate with organizations & local professionals to help refer community members to necessary resources in the simplest way possible.
If you are a Mental Health professional, we would like to ask for your support in giving back to the community.
You can do so in a variety of ways listed below:
- Work with MAS-SSF to develop 2-3 minute informative youtube videos on a variety of topics
- Participate in speaking at a live zoom info session
- Provide pro bono mental health services to individuals or youth
We are especially in need of Dari, Pashto, and English-speaking Mental Health professionals that can assist MAS-SSF staff or community members directly on the road to improved health. We are also looking for professionals who are willing to donate their time specifically to support the communities youth and parents affected by the situation in Afghanistan.
Thank you for supporting us in our goal to support our community and family during this time.
