To address the psychosocial impacts of trauma among international survivors of human rights abuses through culturally aware, trauma-informed, and contextually adapted mental health care, clinical training, and policy advocacy.
Partnerships for Trauma Recovery (PTR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to healing trauma among international survivors of human rights abuses. PTR joins the global movement to reduce the mental health gap by addressing psychological trauma caused by war, torture, human trafficking, and persecution due to identity and beliefs. We strive to narrow the gap by: (a) Expanding the availability of culturally aware, trauma-informed and contextually adapted mental health services; and (b) Reducing factors that cause trauma through trauma-informed policy analysis and advocacy. With combined expertise gained through over twenty years of providing clinical services to survivors of war trauma, torture and persecution, and in-depth experience implementing international human rights programming, our team integrates the fields of global mental health and human rights to expand the range - and increase the depth - of psychosocial support for this highly vulnerable population.
