Hamm Clinic’s Asylum Assessment Services Program provides outreach to asylum seekers who may otherwise lack the inroads to critical mental heath care in their community. Many asylum seekers we serve have no prior experience with receiving support for their mental health which we believe is a fundamental human right. Often, asylum seekers are navigating our governmental asylum process not knowing what they will need to succeed and without an ability to afford those costly steps involved. Hamm clinic seeks to make both access and affordability a non-issue so that asylees can get access to the consequential services that will assist them during one of the most difficult times they will face in their life as they navigate extensive histories of trauma and persecution.
Hamm Clinic staff meet asylee seekers at the unique place they find themselves at in their journey – offering assessment and therapeutic services including documentation for U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that describes the psychological impact of trauma on the individual seeking asylum.
We raise funding in the community to make these life changing services possible. With this funding, we are able to bend the long arc of generational impact toward one of promise and one of hope following the trauma and loss that coincides with being an asylee.
