Armenia: Influences and Organization of Mental Health Services
McCarthy, John; Harutyunyan, Hasmik; Smbatyan, Meri; Cressley, Heidi
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v35 n2 p100-109 Jun 2013
Relatively little has been published on mental health care and counseling as they pertain to Armenia, a country of approximately three million residents that gained independence in 1991 from the former Soviet Union. Various influences, such as its history, economy, religious and family systems, and a major natural disaster in 1988, have affected the subsequent development of professional mental health systems. Though challenges exist, improvements have been evident in the past 15 years with the development of psychiatric facilities, laws protecting clients using mental health services, and professional associations to educate and advocate for mental healthcare issues. The development and possible role of counseling in this country are also discussed.
