Refugees and displaced people suffer from depression, anxiety, or symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder at rates of at least three times higher than the wider population. Our centres incorporate individual and peer-to-peer support in all of our programming.
Younger females experience severe psychological trauma after fleeing their homes and many struggle with uncertainty, danger, and distress. Attempted suicide is increasingly common. The safe social spaces at our centres encourage women and girls to support each other. Cultural and social sensitivities are carefully considered and we provide individualised support.
