The civil war in Syria has created a mental health and humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. Schools, shops and hospitals have all been targeted leaving many Syrian refugees traumatized. There is a need for trauma- informed care. “Syria’s war has seen half a million deaths, over 4 million refugees, and some 7 million internally displaced peoples (IDPs).” The trauma does not discriminate by age either, many school-aged children have seen fellow classmates die from schools being bombed. Since hospitals are also being targeted it is difficult for doctors to get into places like Aleppo to provide care. There is also a lot of gender-based violence in Syria. The symptoms of psychological trauma are shock, guilt, self-blame, guilt and feelings of hopelessness. Many children in refugee camps are not returning to school due to PTSD from school bombings.
