Program for Trauma Care & Health

The majority of our services support trauma therapy and medical programs for survivors of trauma, terror, and violence.

Psychological Counseling and Trauma Therapy

Psychological trauma can affect individuals for their entire lives. Our goal is for every patient to lead a life that is fulfilling and free from the constraints of sustained mental trauma. We encourage our patients to set goals and look toward the future through a wide range of psychological treatment programs and approaches. The diversity of our psychological treatment services reflects the diverse populations and various mental traumas that we see in our clients. Our psychological treatment programs include:

  • Psychological counseling and trauma therapy
  • Age-appropriate treatments for children and adolescents, e.g. in the form of art therapy and play therapy
  • Education and self-help groups
  • Special animal-assisted treatments in our healing garden
  • Regular psychological care to women’s shelters and women’s prisons

Social Counseling

In addition to providing medical and psychological assistance, we help our clients re-enter society and provide opportunities to actively engage in their social environment.

  • Recording and determining the need for assistance

Thousands of women, men and children who survived the three-year ISIS occupation live without access to medical treatment. Many survivors suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression or chronic pain. Jiyan Foundation for Human Rights has been working to destigmatize mental health treatment and provide life-saving services to survivors of terror, trauma and violence in the region – free of charge.
