Maryland Refugee Mental Health Program

Each year approximately 2000 humanitarian immigrants, including refugees, asylees, parolees, and victims of trafficking, are welcomed to Maryland from all over the world. They have left their home countries due to fear of persecution and to escape political, religious, or ethnic strife. Many have experienced trauma; all have experienced loss. While most adapt well to their new community, some may struggle with adjusting to their new circumstances, or carry memories of extraordinary trauma—war, torture, and prolonged separation from loved ones. 

The Maryland Refugee Mental Health Program connects humanitarian immigrants with culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health services.
