We Are QPASTT
QPASTT (Queensland Program of Assistance to Survivors of Torture and Trauma) is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation with no political or religious affiliations providing culturally responsive services to promote the health and wellbeing of people in Australia who have sought safety from persecution, torture and war related trauma.
We have been providing services to torture and trauma survivors in Queensland since 1995 and we welcome all people regardless of their ethnicity, culture, gender, age, ability, sexual orientation, language or religious beliefs. QPASTT is an LGBTIQ+ friendly service that is proudly committed to inclusion and equity for all.
QPASTT can help people no matter how or when they arrived in Australia. We assist people of all ages including young children and the elderly. For children and young people under the age of 16 years, QPASTT needs to get the consent of their parent or guardian.
QPASTT is registered charity and a member of the Forum of Australian Services for Survivors of Torture and Trauma (FASSTT), the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) and the Queensland Alliance for Mental Health.
The Forum of Australian Services for Survivors of Torture and Trauma invites individuals and communities from refugee backgrounds, clinicians, practitioners, researchers, thinkers and policy makers to submit an abstract for the 2023 Australia and New Zealand Refugee Trauma Recovery in Resettlement Conference.
