Gallo Kriserådgivning – Gallo Crisis Counseling

3252 3019 Civilian

Gallo Crisis Counseling is a voluntary, non-profit association in the center of Aarhus, which works for everyone to have access to free and anonymous counseling and care. Gallo was founded in 1999 and builds on the founder (former psychiatric surgeon at Risskov) Johannes Nielsen’s values ​​that everyone should have the opportunity to have a free space where they can become affiliated with social communities. No matter how small or big challenges you face, we meet our guests at eye level and invite them to become part of our Gallo family. We want to see them as the people they are, and not from the issues they have.

We are open 30 hours a week and offer a place to be, telephone counseling and call therapy. In 2017 we received over 11,000 inquiries – a number that has been steadily rising since Gallo’s startup. The increasing number of inquiries speaks its clear language that there is a real need for an anonymous and free counseling center.

Looking at Gallo one evening, you will be able to meet people from all societies. We do not divide people based on religion, ethnicity or education – on the contrary. We regard it as our most important task to be a community where everyone can find a warm and safe place to be.

Volunteering is important to Gallo. Throughout the year, we have attached 75 volunteers, primarily students from psychologists, social education and educational programs. The volunteers meet our guests in the center over a cup of coffee or a game; conducting therapy; and solves a lot of other tasks such as fundraising, recruitment and amusement of the center.

In addition, we always have a range of offers to our guests in the house in the form of communal meals, trips out of the house or vacations in a cottage. We are implementing the “Community for Everyone” project, where we are going through communal meals and trips out of the house to strengthen the community among our users by giving them a lot of common experiences they can share with each other. We wish our guests to be able to go to the cinema, the swimming pool, and at the restaurant – just like everyone else.
