One Woman’s Story, From Isolation to Healing

Mental health is severely affected by civil strife.  AMAR is working to offset the country’s severe shortage of mental health services by providing professional health counseling to victims of this trauma. A 46-year-old woman residing in AMAR’s Khanke Camp in northern Iraq suffered from severe depression due to ISIS terrorist attacks and the resulting loss of her daughter. This impacted her sleeping, thinking, and eating habits which, in turn, affected her physical health and her relationships with other family members.  She eventually withdrew, preferring isolation which increased her difficulties. A mental health professional met with her. Psychological sessions and drug therapy helped balance her sleep and eating habits and improve her interactions with family members. After several sessions, she overcame many of her negative practices, regained the ability to perform household tasks, improved relationships with family members, and showed increased abilities to overcome the effects of the trauma she had endured. Mental health is addressed one patient at a time.  Iraq’s 3 million Internally Displaced Persons are vulnerable to mental health issues. AMAR targets mental health as one of its goals.  Please help us bring relief to some of the world’s most traumatized victims.
