The report provides excerpts from the stories recounted by immigrant and refugee women and information about how they addressed their experiences with community based services, what was useful to them in their healing, and what the barriers were. It also describes the knowledge and awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder among physicians, psychiatrists and other service providers and their experiences with immigrant and refugee women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Finally, the study also begins to draw parallels with the experiences of Aboriginal women.
