ABOUT TORTURE

AFTER EFFECTS

Psychological symptoms of torture frequently include anxiety, depression, irritability, paranoia, guilt, suspiciousness, sexual dysfunction, loss of concentration, confusion, insomnia,

nightmares, impaired memory, and memory loss! Survivors of torture are often unwilling to disclose information about their experiences. They may be suspicious, frightened, or anxious to forget about what has happened. These

feelings may discourage them from seeking the help they need.
