because psychological well-being is a right of every person

Some of the people who participated in the establishment of PsyPlus Onlus had already experienced the tragedy of the emergency professionally or personally. Several of us have matured their interest in the subject having known closely the catastrophe of the earthquake in L'Aquila and its surroundings, in 2009. The event that instead marked the start of our operations in the field of emergency psychology is Instead, it was the earthquake that hit a large part of Central Italy in August 2016. Since then, knowing how to stay in an emergency and knowing how to operate effectively to contain its traumatic impact, has become an important part of our mission.
