Enosh: Supported Housing for Women with Psychosocial Disabilities and Sexual Trauma

Welcome to the awardee video of Enosh´s Supported Housing for Women with Psychosocial Disabilities and Sexual Trauma, a winner of the 2019 Zero Project Award on Independent Living and Political Participation.

Enosh (The Israeli Mental Health Association) is a non-profit organization and the largest provider of community mental health services in Israel. Enosh has developed training on trauma and a trauma-informed housing model to support women with psychosocial disabilities who live with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of sexual abuse. The four shared apartments offer a safe environment with support from staff who have received training in sexual trauma and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Most Enosh staff members will have received the trauma training by the end of 2018, and in 2019 the organization plans to offer programs to beneficiaries too.
