FRIDAY / New class for refugee families

In addition to individual family counseling, Trampoline House has launched a new Family class that offers information, support, and advice to refugee parents. The class takes place every first Friday of the month from 3–4 pm. It is very challenging to uphold a healthy family life in the stressfull asylum centers or when you have just been granted residence permit and everything is new to you. Many refugee parents and their children suffer from stress, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which affect the mental health of the families. In the Family class, we organize presentations and group discussions that can help refugee parents create healthy family routines and improve communication between the family members. When: Friday, Sept. 6, 3–4 pm. Where: Trampoline House's counseling office.
