The recovery of mental health and human rights of victims of political violence in Peru and the work of CAPS

Erika Cuba

In 2002, during the so called Peruvian transition period (2001-2003), the Center for Psychosocial Care (CAPS) an NGO committed to the recovery of mental health and human rights of victims of political violence, acknowledged the need to formalize a program complementary to the integral psychosocial care that would allow victims of the conflict, could face economic hardship in which the civil war had left them. At that time, Peru had no institutional system to support victims of the conflict. However, after the mandate of the Commission of Truth and Reconciliation, civil society took in their hands this responsibility. CAPS through its program of social and humanitarian aid, intended to help victims not only focusing on counseling, psychotherapy, psychiatry and physical health problems but also offering loans that would allow them self-generating revenues through the implementation of a project that could be individual or collective.
