Therapy Cooperative is an advocate for mental healthcare access. The hope is that mental healthcare is included in the universal healthcare system and that mental healthcare is guided by the consumer. Unfortunately, The Department of Health in Iceland does not currently recognize Psychotherapists, Couples & Relationship Therapists, Family Therapists, or Creative Arts Therapies. Despite scientific evidence to the effectiveness and legitimacy of these professions in other European and American countries, the Department of Health in Iceland continues to rejected applications from these associations. Please join us on making people aware and holding the Department of Health accountable.

 

Until this changes, Therapy Cooperative offers a grant to those who do not have a mental healthcare supporting union. The grant offered is 8 sessions for 9.000 kr per session. The grant expires 15 weeks after the date the grant is offered, if all sessions have not been used. A grant can be renewed, pending wait list availability. 

 

Please contact us at TherapyCooperative@gmail.com if you or someone you know is interested in taking advantage of this grant. We offer in-person and online sessions.

Many unions and associations offer subsidies for the services of mental health and relational treatment. You may also apply for a grant from Social Services of the municipality in which you live. Some employers are willing to support their staff on the cost of mental healthcare. An active vocational rehabilitation fund is for people who are at risk of dropping out of the labor market due to ill health. Wellness and mental health support are in some cases part of the Active service.

 

Below is a list of some unions and how much each union subsidises a member to pay for mental healthcare costs. Contact your union, association, or your community service for more information.
