Torture can affect the lives of its victims long after the physical scars have healed. The STRC offers free, comprehensive specialty mental health and psychiatric services, medical and case management coordination, plus social and legal service referrals for refugees and immigrants who are suffering from the devastating effects of torture. STRC’s mission is to provide compassionate, culturally-appropriate, trauma-informed care to our clients in order to help them deal with the past and move towards a bright future. STRC is located in a wing of Americana Community Center (4803 Southside Drive, Louisville, KY 40214).

If you are interesting in developing another clinical area of expertise (i.e., working with traumatized refugees), please consider volunteering to provide mental health services to survivors of torture. There will be opportunities to assist with both individual and group therapy sessions. Training will be provided by STRC staff. Both masters and doctoral-level licensed clinical social workers are encouraged to participate in this unique therapeutic opportunity. We are seeking licensed clinicians who have strong experience working with highly traumatized individuals.

The volunteer opportunity would involve seeing one or two clients on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. If your schedule would allow, we have a weekly multi-disciplinary client case review meeting on Thursday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:00 am that includes a staff psychiatrist, several social workers, a case manager and a clinical psychologist. Occasionally, home visits to provide therapy to clients are necessary.

If you are interested in providing pro bono mental health services to survivors of torture, please contact:
