The Mental Health Aspects of Trafficking in Human Beings - A Set of Minimum Standards

The Minimum Standards presented in that booklet, recognize the fact that a significant number of trafficked persons are traumatized by their experiences, and psychological scars often take much longer to heal than physical scars. These Minimum Standards aim to provide a guiding tool for all types of organizations who are already acting or are intending to develop programs in the field of combating trafficking. Furthermore, the standards aim to help the implementation of comprehensive and coordinated psychosocial care of trafficked persons from the time of their rescue to throughout their reintegration process.
