What types of services do torture survivors need?

To heal from the wounds of torture and trauma, survivors often need medical assistance and psychological services. Since many torture survivors have resettled in new and foreign communities, they need social services to help them adjust to a new environment. Additionally, since many survivors are refugees or asylum-seekers, they often need legal assistance in the United States. Healing centers can help provide these services to help survivors move on from their experiences to lead happy and productive lives.
