    Mental Health Clinics

    All mental health clinics are available to be accessed by refugees.  Health insurance covers mental health diagnosis and treatment (See Health Insurance page).  Health insurance covers interpreter services. If you believe that a refugee is  feeling too sad, too worried, having trouble sleeping, nightmares, has no appetite/isn’t eating, or not caring for self or family in some way, then an appointment can be made for the refugee to have an intake appointment, where the problem is discussed and appropriate services are determined. All that is needed  is to call the clinic and schedule an initial (or intake) appointment.  An interpreter, if needed, should be requested at this time. It is the responsibility of the clinic or provider to arrange for an interpreter but you should be sure to let them know what language is needed.

    Several  mental health (also called behavioral health) clinics specialize in providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services. These clinics are listed below:

    HealthPartners Center for International Health, Behavioral Health Clinic

    Community-University Health Care Clinic

    Somali and East African Behavioral Health Services Program

    Wilder Foundation Southeast Asian Services (SAS)

    Bethesda Clinic

    Thea Lee MA, LMFT (CA), Somatic Experience Practitioner

    Thea Lee is a Somatic Experience Practitioner specializing in somatic healing of traumas, provider selfcare, and yoga for mind-body awareness. She is also the coordinator for professional SE training in St. Paul. Prior to moving to Minnesota 2.5 years ago, she has worked in settings including a non-profit rape crisis center, a county juvenile hall, and a state prison for women.

     SE (Somatic Experience) is unique because it has a dual goal of relieving the symptoms of trauma AND increasing people’s resiliency and capacity for experiencing life in its full depth and scope. We are born with the potential to cultivate the ability to suffer, rejoice, love and be loved fully without becoming overwhelmed or developing trauma symptoms. However, stress and trauma during childhood and adolescence often prevents us from thoroughly developing this resiliency. SE works to relieve trauma symptoms AND increase resiliency.

     

    “Somatic” means “of the body”. Somatic Experience® (SE) is a body-focused approach to understanding and healing the effects of stress and trauma.SE is different from talk therapy, bodywork or energy healing.

    Jan Jirak, MA, LP, SEP

    Jan Jirak is a Psychologist with more than 10 years’ experience who specializes in the healing of trauma, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), anxiety or fears, and relationship issues.  She uses EMDR (Eye Movement Densitization and Reprocessing), cognitive-behavioral therapy, Somatic Experiencing (a body and mind approach), and guided imagery.  

    “What is Somatic Experiencing® (SE)?

    Somatic Experiencing® is a body-awareness approach to trauma being taught throughout the world. It is the result of over forty years of observation, research, and hands-on development by Dr. Levine. Based upon the realization that human beings have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma, Somatic Experiencing has touched the lives of many thousands. SE® restores self-regulation, and returns a sense of aliveness, relaxation and wholeness to traumatized individuals who have had these precious gifts taken away. Peter has applied his work to combat veterans, rape survivors, Holocaust survivors, auto accident and post surgical trauma, chronic pain sufferers, and even to infants after suffering traumatic births.”  (Retrieved from:  http://www.traumahealing.com/somatic-experiencing/index.html on 08/10/2010)
