Survivor Resources

Join the Conversation

Tuesday, July 7th to Wednesday, September 30th

Please join us in an online, open forum on telehealth. NCB is providing an opportunity for clinicians to ask each other questions, share observations and adapted telehealth protocols for the SoT population via an online forum and technical exchange. This conversation will be a forum for peer-led informational exchange. NCB staff will assist in facilitating and monitoring the conversation.

Directions: Please watch Eugene Augusterfer’s presentation and interview Telemedicine in Mental Health first. Then feel free to join us in this open forum. All are welcome to join this forum, whether you have an account on Healtorture.org or not. For more information on using the forum, please read the directions on the first post. Please keep your comments respectful, relevant, factual, and do not share identifying information about clients per client privacy and HIPAA regulations. This forum will be open from July 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

There are thousands of torture survivors who recover from their trauma and lead very productive and vital lives.

If you are a survivor of torture and would like to seek medical, mental health, legal or social service assistance, please contact one of the Healing Centers nearest you.

If you are in urgent need of mental health assistance, please go to Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Find Treatment web page. This site offers information and a 24-hour Toll-free treatment referral helpline: 1-800-662-4357.

Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International (TASSC)
The mission of TASSC is to end the practice of torture wherever it occurs and to empower survivors, their families and communities wherever they are.
