Psychoactive – Mental Health Professionals for Human Rights” is a group of practicing and academic mental health professionals who have set themselves the goal of being active in areas of social-political concern, especially the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The group developed out of the members’ need to expand therapeutic discourse and practice to include the social and political issues around them. These social and political issues are relevant to all aspects of therapeutic theory and practice, and it is Psychoactive’s goal to shed light on them and to draw attention to their manifold influences on the therapeutic space.

In addition, Psychoactive members wish to examine the significance of their position as health professionals within public services and institutions, with the aim of promoting social activity extending beyond the cloistered clinic, for the benefit of individuals and groups whose voice is presently absent from both the public domain and the professional discourse.
