Our work

Asylum seekers and refugees are more likely to suffer from mental health challenges, even after they arrive at a place of relative safety.


Amna provides refugee communities with safe spaces where they can heal from the effects of conflict, war and displacement by reconnecting with others and becoming part of a community.


By supporting individuals, organisations and refugee communities to run safe spaces for restorative group activities, we help people regain their resilience and rediscover feelings of joy and belonging.

Our Tweets

In #Greece, an asylum system based on exclusion and deterrence drives poor mental health among refugees and asylum seekers. We need a system based on compassion, humanity and responsibility. #RefugeesWelcome #MentalHealthMatters
