One day, all survivors of human trafficking and violent sexual assault will have access to the mental health services they require to return to a purposeful part of society and live their fullest life possible.
Restoring identity through mental health programs and services.
Phase One - 6 Months
First Stage (3 months) - Survivors are eligible for our services after a minimum of three months of rescue or escaping their traffickers and predators and once they have achieved initial primary care services and housing placement. If a survivor chooses to be part of the Flying with Air Mental Health Service Program, they agree to the initial on-boarding regulations and a minimum of six months of care. When on board, survivors are assigned a mental health professional and begin therapy sessions twice a week. The survivor will also be required to meet with an assigned mentor for life skill development. They will attend three sessions per week. It is critical to be active with survivors during this time and require perfect attendance to reduce the rate of harmful decisions.
Phase Two - 42 Months
Therapy sessions at this stage are once a month and focused on uncovering and processing obstacles that can inhibit the success of rebuilding the survivor’s life. They will remain with their assigned mentor to discuss education and career. Survivors will complete a monthly questionnaire rating their experience with our services as well as a "quality of life" questionnaire.
Phase Three -12 months
The "contribution to others" stage is defined by the give back and give rise to members of society and survivors in Phase Two of the Flying with Air Mental Health Service Program. Our survivors will be equipped with the confidence, independence and stability to have the choice to speak out against these crimes. Thus, helping survivors be lifted up. Please note, survivors will only be able to mentor other survivors in the first and second stage of the Mental Health Program. This reduces the risk of repeat trauma. These survivors will need to be approved by their mental health providers before contribution to other options are available.
