ONE FOR ONE Online clinic
Embrace’s Online clinic was launched to cater for Lebanese and Arabic speaking individuals who are living outside of Lebanon and believe in Embrace’s mission and services . In addition, there is a need based on requests sent to Embrace from abroad, for mental health services among Lebanese in the diaspora who find it difficult to connect with non-Arabic speaking therapists across the world. There is also a strong motivation among the diaspora to support Lebanon, and its mental health needs. Through this online clinic, individuals can receive high-standard therapy through Embrace’s team of licensed psychologists and psychiatrists.
Embrace’s Mental Health Center was initially envisioned as a low-fee clinic, in which consultation fees paid by beneficiaries would contribute to covering the running costs of the clinic, to provide a more affordable high-quality mental health service to patients who cannot afford care in the private setting. However, due to the devaluation of the Lebanese Pound, pricing of mental health services today in local currency and at low rates is no longer a viable option for sustainability. In order to continue with its mission to provide accessible mental health care to the community and continue to run the EMHC which in its first year proved to be a highly needed and successful community mental health center, and in line with Embrace’s mission to adopt a model of social entrepreneurship.

The Embrace Online Clinic offers psychiatry and psychotherapy sessions which are paid for through its online payment gateway. With one major difference: your funds would not only cover your own sessions, but those of someone else who cannot afford it in Lebanon. By getting help, you would be helping others, who cannot afford the help they need.
