Who we are
Centra is part of the Psychosocial Centre of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. For our tasks, we are funded by the Social Department of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
Our team is intercultural, multilingual and interprofessional. It consists of psychotherapists, doctors, social workers and peer counselors, among others. If necessary, we involve trained language mediators. We provide counselling and treatment that is trauma-specific, culturally sensitive and with a holistic understanding.
We see it as a matter of course to stand up for the rights of refugees, including their right to health. Traumatised people need low-threshold access to high-quality treatment services. These are currently too rarely available to refugees. It is therefore our concern to close gaps in the assistance system and remove obstacles that prevent those affected from receiving the help they urgently need. We are particularly committed to groups with special needs, such as refugee women with traumatic experiences, for whom cooperation in specific networks is especially central. In this way, we hope to contribute to the successful integration and equality of refugees in our society.
