While many refugees who escaped wars have witnessed and experienced human rights abuses, including violence, humiliation, torture, loss and displacement, many other less fortunate, especially young people and women suffer from living high levels of stress. Poverty is clearly linked with several mental health problems, including schizophrenia, depression and anxiety, and substance misuse.

Despite the extremely insecure and volatile environment, RASIT has been working with its fellow members and partners to fighting RACISM and DISCRIMINATION by creating harmony and tolerance among all kinds of races and assisting in aiding, relieving, and rescuing underprivileged individuals wherever around the world and help them gain confidence and rebuild their lives.

RASIT’s fellow experts have been tailoring mental health service based on the people’s need and the situation they are facing.

RASIT’s internationally respected mental health professionals also deliver practical and advanced training for local psychologists to help them serve their communities.

The mental health support is set up with the aims of:

  1. Helping less fortunate people and refugees feel empowered to deal with their psychological distress by offering a culturally and linguistically sensitive counselling service.
  2. Providing initial training and supportive opportunities in which people can rediscover their abilities and regain their confidence to be active members of society.
