Supporting Slovenia’s Psychologists

Tina B Schmautz

The Slovenian Psychologist’s Association is a voluntary NPO that unites professionals across a broad spectrum of disciplines from the fields of science, education, sports, health, social welfare, labor, employment, defence, environmental protection and spatial planning among others.

These members serve on several public projects and assist citizens and refugees in need of their services. The 155 active members offer professional, free counselling covering a broad range of topics including mental illness, psychological or domestic abuse, trauma, stress, violence and others.

Three members of Aspen’s team in Slovenia assisted the Association with the planning and hosting of a Psychology day which focused on identifying areas of improvement that could provide better access to treatment for individuals with such a need.
