The mobile refugee team

Structurally expanding mental healthcare for people with a migration or refugee background requires cooperation.

In Limburg, Solentra and CGG Kohesi therefore decided to join forces. The mobile refugee team was founded in 2016.

Prevention of violent radicalisation and extremism
Untreated war trauma and the inability to find a place in society can in some cases contribute to extreme violence. As a trauma expert, Solentra therefore offers policy support to local governments.
Be-Coming Home (Caring Neighbourhoods)
The project ‘Be-Coming Home’ focuses on the Hallepoort and Bosnia neighbourhoods in Saint-Gilles. By mobilising and informing residents, we want to tap into their resilience and come up with joint solutions to break social isolation and promote integration.
Trauma counselling Antwerp
This project bolsters the self-reliance of newcomers by focusing on the prevention and early detection of psychological problems, in particular trauma.
Re-Imagine Covid
Through the ‘Re-Imagine Covid’ project, Solentra conducted an action research with young refugees and newcomers on the impact of Covid on their mental well-being and resilience.
Primary care organisations often lack the skills to support parents from different cultural backgrounds in a culture- and trauma-sensitive way. In this participatory process, Solentra builds the capacity of organisations to provide appropriate and effective care and guidance to this target group.
The Missing Link
This project provides cultural and trauma-sensitive psychological care to young people (15-24 years) with a refugee background in Ghent and surrounding areas.
Colour in care and care in colour
Healthcare institutions do not sufficiently reach people with a refugee or migration background due to various barriers. To contribute to a more effective and qualitative care offer for our target group, Solentra provides trauma treatment for refugees and trainings for social workers and integration actors.
Trauma therapy for refugee families and unaccompanied minors
Institutions often struggle to reach refugee families and unaccompanied minors due to language barriers, the stigma attached to psychiatry in different cultures, a diffuse demand for help and a lack of knowledge of the needs and pathologies of this target group. Through outreach work with social workers and the target group, Solentra helps bridge the gap.
Training for guardians
Guardians of unaccompanied minors are confronted with all kinds of challenges, such as language and cultural differences, complex requests for help and suspicions of trauma or other psychological problems. Solentra therefore developed an e-learning tailored to guardians in Dutch and French.
Training for Public Centres for Social Welfare and partners
Public Centres for Social Welfare (PCSWs) and their partners are often the first support agencies approached by refugees and other newcomers from third countries. These training courses provide their social workers and care providers with the necessary knowledge and tools.

Partner with Solentra

Interested in setting up a structural partnership with us? We would be happy to discuss ways in which we can collaborate to make trauma therapy more accessible to people with a refugee background.
