Dear Mount Sinai Mental Health Providers,

The Mount Sinai Human Rights Program is currently seeking volunteer physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, and mental health LCSWs to evaluate the growing number of evaluation requests that the program receives.  In particular, there is a shortage of available psychiatrists, psychologists, mental LCSWs to complete these essential evaluations for asylum seekers. The medical evidence provided by volunteers through an examination, medical affidavit, and oral testimony is often the difference between an individual being granted asylum and relief from deportation or being forced to return to persecution in their home countries.  Health providers are uniquely positioned to work at this intersection of health, human rights and social justice, and to make an impact on the lives of those who have faced egregious human rights abuses.

Sincerely,

The Mount Sinai Human Rights Program - Clinic Management and Recruitment Teams
