This psychological report was commissioned by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. It is a systematic literature search that examines the mental health of the Syrian population. It hones in on the exacerbation of pre-existing mental illness, new psychological trauma, and treatment methods. Further, it identifies groups that are particularly vulnerable to abuse during this time: children, LBGTQ+ individuals, and women. After detailing the violence that this population has experienced, it suggests that a highly tailored treatment approach will best help them recover and rehabilitate.
