Mental health across cultures

Prodiving mental health assessment, prevention and intervention through an intercultural lens


At AMKA we believe that mental health support should be available across cultures and languages. We are a remote-first community of mental health professionals using culturally sensitive methods to support people with their mental health challenges.

AMKA was founded by Dr Zsofia Szlamka in 2020 – in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We focus on providing support to communities like ourselves: culturally diverse and working in a hybrid model. We therefore work with organisations with staff members across countries; with small businesses; and with individuals who started a new life chapter abroad.

Our Approach

Our methodology consists of three keywords: Assessment, Prevention, Intervention.

We offer evidence-based and culturally sensitive psychological support in a variety of local languages.
We help create a mental health strategy, we help implement preventive techniques, and if mental health concerns arise, we help address them.


Our services range from Assessment, through a focus on Prevention, to delivering Intervention when needed. 

We help assess mental health and wellbeing at your organisation using quantitative and qualitative research methods.
We help you build: 
  • A mental health strategy
  • A cross-cultural communication strategy
  • Implement a monitoring process for your policies

We see prevention to be the number one goal in mental health and wellbeing support. 

We offer psychoeducation-focused training programmes to help develop and maintain preventive habits at work and at home for improved mental health outcomes.

Some of our prevention-focused thematic modules include: 

  • Caregiver wellbeing
  • Inclusive communication
  • Career transition support
  • Reflective check-in points for executives

If and when mental health symptoms develop, we help address them. 

We offer:

  • Counselling with a psychologist
  • Coaching with a coach
  • Community workshops facilitated by a psychologist


Some of our thematic intervention modules include: 

  • Stress and anxiety management
  • Men’s mental health
  • Mental health first aid
  • Conflict management

Who do we support

Is your firm in the private sector, with colleagues based across countries and continents? Is your organisation an international NGO? We are here to support mental health needs across cultures.

We specialise in supporting those who decided to start a new life chapter: who moved abroad, who travel for work or to see loved ones, who work remotely.

Choose us as we are psychologists with a lived experience of starting a new life abroad.

Startup founders and small business owners care fondly about their people and their wellbeing. As a small company it can at times be hard to know where to start.
