Mental Health for Refugees and Asylum Seekers


Refugees and asylum seekers more often than not arrive in the United States after having endured difficult conditions and traumatic experiences. As a consequence, many are affected by stress and trauma-related mental health issues, such as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

Newly arrived asylum seekers often have difficulty finding mental health assistance, especially when many are unlikely to venture beyond their close family and friends, and there are stigmas attached to seeking such assistance. Fortunately across the country, there are many organizations that provide low-cost or free mental healthcare.
