Supporting young professionals – mental health training

The Romanian Online Counseling and Psychotherapy Association (ACPOR) has launched a project to support the continuous training of young mental health professionals. The project aligns with ACPOR’s mission to increase the quality of mental health services available to the community.

As part of the project, in March 2020 ACPOR is offering two training courses in psychotherapy for depression and anxiety using online methods, CPR accredited courses (18 and 24 credits). With the support of Betfair Romania Development, 50 young professionals from all over the country will benefit from a 50% discount on the courses.
