Pompidou Group Guidance Paper on Psychosocial Support

Approximately 60-70% of the general population experience a traumatic event at some point in their lifetime, which can include forms of violence, abuse, neglect and war. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are often concurrent and develop as a result of a person being exposed to a traumatic event.

Therefore, part of providing adequate health service is responding correctly to the effects of trauma.

The latest Pompidou Group paper addresses this issue, by providing guidance on psychosocial support to tackle trauma-related symptoms and related substance use disorders, in particular among refugees, internally displaced persons and war veterans as groups especially vulnerable to PTSD.
