Southeast Asian Services

Outpatient Groups for Cambodian Holocaust Survivors

The Southeast Asian Program at Journey Mental Health Center provides mental health and related support services to members of the local Southeast Asian community who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the result of surviving the Cambodian Holocaust (1975-1979).

Journey has worked with Southeast Asian refugees for over 20 years.  Thoughtful and deliberate care has been taken to design the program and services in ways that are culturally appropriate; provide an environment which is friendly, open, and comfortable for Southeast Asian people; and establish trustworthy linkages to the larger community.

Using a model developed by David Kinzie, M.D., F.A.C., Department of Psychiatry at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, the Southeast Asian Program at Journey Mental Health Center provides supportive psychotherapy, medication, long term support groups, and social work/culture brokering.

Southeast Asian consumers may access services at a number of Journey locations, including:
