Mobilizing Mental Health Professionals for Israel

The Second Line initiative serves as a platform to support frontline trauma and mental care in Israel.

Second Line was formed in the aftermath of the October 7, 2023 attack on Israel in collaboration with the Israel Ministry of Health and the Israel Trauma Coalition, supported by the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) and Birthright, and is focused on the global recruitment and deployment of mental healthcare professionals to travel to Israel or to volunteer remotely to provide individual and group care to affected individuals, families, and local mental healthcare professionals working on the ground in Israel.
