How MindOut Helped me: Mohammad’s Story

Last year MindOut saw a massive 400% increase in demand for our services from LGBTQ Migrants, Refugees and asylum seekers.

Meet Mohammed – just a few months ago he was awaiting the outcome of his asylum application and living in fear of being deported – here’s how MindOut helped:

 

We worked with 25 people, all of whom had traumatic histories – trafficking, torture, being enslaved and childhood trauma including rape.

Everyone we worked with was homeless and sofa surfing with friends whilst experiencing extreme financial hardship. With no access to benefits, all were hungry, sometimes going days without food.

The level of distress and hopelessness that these people are experiencing is off the scale. The risk of suicide is very high. But with the help of MindOut people can survive and improve their life circumstances.
