Living on the Margins - Refugees Surviving Torture & Beyond

Understanding the issues facing refugees who are survivors of torture is important to ensuring that medical, mental health, and social services support healing while these individuals navigate resettlement.  Living on the Margins - Refugees Surviving Torture and Beyond explores the effects of torture and trauma in conflict settings and the healing support needed as refugees resettle. Speakers and community members will engage in discussion about this vulnerable refugee population to support integration into host communities through better understanding their past experience and its impact on their daily lives.
