Building a community of support for survivors of political violence and torture
Through our community partnerships, our goal is to support survivors overcome the legacy of oppression and live with dignity.
What we do
We collaborate with health professionals, social service agencies, immigrant settlement workers and the broader community to ensure that the needs of survivors of torture are recognized and met at all levels.
Eight mental health and settlement agencies in Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island are joining forces to support survivors of torture and their communities.
