Help Empower Palestinians in Crisis

Providing Mind-Body Tools to Cultivate a Sense of Safety in People's Minds and Bodies


Relief Efforts in the Occupied Palestinian Territories

We are working closely with community-based organizations to enhance and expand upon mental health support and trauma recovery resources. We particularly focus on meeting the needs of poor, vulnerable, marginalized and isolated people. 

TRY Global works to improve the mental and physical well-being and resilience of low-income and marginalized communities by training Palestinians to teach Trauma Recovery Yoga and placing them in paid teaching positions. Our team is facilitating Psychological First Aid trainings for organization staff, aid workers and community leaders. And we're connecting Palestinians with volunteer psychologists online for one-on-on therapy  sessions.

How We Serve

TRY Teacher Trainings & Programs

After facilitating the 2-day TRY Teacher training, our staff mentors participants for a duration of 6-12 weeks to help prepare them to teach TRY classes in their communities. See more details on the program below.

Virtual Therapy Sessions

Psychological First Aid

Why Support Palestinians with TRY?

Studies show that the TRY method...

  • reduces anxiety and depression-related symptoms

  • enhances individual and community resilience 

  • improves heart-rate variability, strengthening the vagus nerve 

  • brings balance back into the nervous system, improving both mental & physical health and well-being
