Psychological Support to Syrian Refugees in Turkey

by SIVIL HIMAYE DERNEGI

Summary

Turkey hosts some 3 million refugees from Syria, among them are some 1.5 million Syrian children. Women and Children, told us about the fear they experienced when they were in their home communities in Syria: fear of attack and fear of checkpoints. They remember the death, violence, and screaming, which made them constantly fearful. They urgently need to have psychological support to regain their mental health and overcome excessive trauma, otherwise they will quickly become a lost generation.

Challenge

Before fleeing Syria and during the journey to Turkey, many Syrians have witnessed or experienced the death of loved ones, physical harm, violent and terrifying situations. The psychological impact of conflict-related violence have a significant impact on the mental health and psycho-social well-being of Syrian refugee adults and children. They urgently need to have psychological support to regain their mental health and overcome excessive trauma.

Solution

Our project aims at filling a critical service gap in strengthening the psychosocial well-being of the Syrian refugee and vulnerable children. Our qualified psychotherapy team will provide psychological care services for Syrian refugees women and children in Turkey through group therapy focuses on children, women, and victims of torture and domestic violence.

Long-Term Impact

A recent report by the Global Child Protection Working Group, the global level forum for coordination on child protection in humanitarian settings, indicated that 98% of Syrian children surveyed reported deterioration in their psychosocial well-being. Such long-term effects can impact an entire generation of young people, and threaten the sustainability of peace and development. This project will contribute in reducing the risk of a potential "lost generation".
