Mission

Refugee Trauma Initiative provides vital psychosocial support to refugees experiencing trauma of war, torture and displacement. As part of our stated mission, we also train and support humanitarians, helping them to provide the best possible care for those in need. We believe that by connecting with communities in their own language, and by providing them with continuing care, support and guidance informed by psychological principles, we can help them to process their experiences and foster their integration into society. Our approaches are simple and scalable so that they can adapt to a variety of settings and programmes.
