World Refugee Awareness Month
June was first declared as World Refugee Awareness Month in 2001. Since then, June has been a time to acknowledge strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees who live around the globe. Refugee children and their families must deal with past traumatic experiences while integrating into a new and unfamiliar society. They must look for safety in an unknown culture, and ask for help in a nonnative language. These children and families have experienced war-related trauma and disruption, as well as resettlement, poverty, unemployment, stigmatization, and bias.
The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) has compiled a list of helpful resources for parents and caregivers, children, mental health providers, child welfare and juvenile justice professionals, healthcare providers, educators and school staff, and policy makers.
