Psychosocial rehabilitation services for survivors of torture

Since 2013, the Babel Day Center has been providing specialized psychosocial rehabilitation services to survivors of torture, with the ultimate goal of integration in the local community.

The network of provided services includes:

  • Provision of mental health care (psychiatric and psychological care) by specialized professionals.
  • Cooperation with other bodies to support the asylum process and related legal requests and procedures.
  • Cooperation with other organizations to facilitate survivors’ access to the labor market.

In addition, the program aims to improve the knowledge, skills and attitudes of professionals, by providing training to other professionals regarding the management of cases involving vulnerable people such as survivors of torture.
