Emotional support for refugees

On behalf of the NHS in Sussex we would like to warmly welcome you to this country.

You will have suffered significant loss and you may be struggling to adapt to your move.

You may have suffered physical injuries and been through difficult and traumatic experiences. It is completely understandable that you may be feeling low, anxious or emotional. 

This page aims to help you understand what you might be struggling with and how you can access our National Health Service (NHS) for help. These services are free. Please contact us if you need support.  

The information below will provide you with details on common reactions to trauma and loss as well as guidance on how you can manage these difficulties. It also describes the types of treatments we offer. Click on the text below for more information.
