Amna was set up by a former Afghan refugee to alleviate the suffering of displaced communities through psychosocial support. Now we’re building the largest network of healing communities around the world.
Refugees’ stories don’t end when they escape violence and humanitarian crises take huge tolls on people’s mental health. People who have experienced conflict are more likely to be affected by depression, toxic stress and anxiety. Separation from support networks like family and friends can leave people feeling isolated and struggling to process their trauma.
Amna works with non-governmental and community organisations around the world to build lasting healing networks and structures that continue to support communities long after the camera crews have left. We provide funding, training, tools and mentorship in trauma-sensitive psychosocial support so that vital mental health services are available to those healing from the trauma of displacement. Our open calls can be found at the link below.
Our resources are designed to build connection
and facilitate healing and self-care for families
Amna works with humanitarian and community organisations, frontline workers and advocates to replicate our programmes, deliver high-quality psychosocial support, and maintain personal and organisational wellbeing. We also provide direct psychosocial support services for refugees and other displaced communities which organisations can refer individuals to.
