          Abstract

          Syrian refugees have become a topic of international discussion. The Syrian Civil War has led 13.1 million Syrians in need of human assistance from neighboring countries. While being in need of physical resources like food and shelter, refugees also experiences psychological implications in this difficult time. These psychological difficulties include depression and anxiety from losing loved ones and constantly being surrounded by a warzone. As a response, funding and other solutions have taken place through organizations like the Office of the United Nations High Commissioners for Refugees (UNHCR) and the European Union (EU). An example of a current solution would be the use of Emergency Transit Centers. While there are solutions in place, they lack in focus on mental health. The recommendations are to request more funding, request outside help with counselors or mental health advocates, and develop a realistic assessment of capacity.
