Psycho-social Support

Acid attacks come with adverse physical, psychological and economic consequences. Survivors therefore need maximum psycho-social support to rebuild their lives The Psycho-social team of social workers and peer counselors conduct counseling sessions during hospital and home visits.

Hospital visits enable social workers to monitor survivors’ medical condition while home visits are conducted after the survivor has been re-settled in the community.

During home visits, counselors work with survivors and family members to identify challenges and coping mechanisms which can be adopted.
 
Key community members are also involved in this process to ensure that the survivor has a strong support system.
