Mental Health Clinic
The Refugee Mental Health Clinic provides specialist psychiatric and psychological services to people from refugee backgrounds.
The Clinic brings together independent practitioners with specialist experience in torture and trauma, and sometimes further specialisations such as adolescent health, to provide psychopharmacology and psychotherapy services to Foundation House clients.
Clients of the clinic can be connected, as appropriate, to counselling, advocacy, natural therapies, medical referral, community capacity building or other programmes, providing a unique, holistic and flexible model of service.
Often the needs of other family members are identified in the course of providing treatment and these family members may be linked into the Clinic or to other Foundation House services.
In August 2013 the Clinic celebrated 10 years of service.
