In New York City, survivors of torture are all around us. They are far from home and unable to find the help they need. At the Program for Survivors of Torture, we treat the whole person-the physical, emotional, and social aspects of health. We support survivors through all the challenges necessary to rebuild lives devastated by torture.

The Program envisions a world where victims of torture and other horrific human rights abuses are able to receive the compassionate, comprehensive care and support needed to lead healthy and self-sufficient lives in the United States.

Since its inception in 1995, the Program has provided comprehensive medical and mental health care, as well as social and legal services, to more than 4,000 survivors and their family members from more than 100 countries.

The Program has an international reputation for excellence in our clinical, educational, and research activities, and contributes knowledge and testimony to global efforts to end torture.
