The primary goal of Vive Zene is to improve mental health of torture victims. Those are the persons tortured during and after the war in Bosnia Herzegovina. By doing this, we contribute to the torture prevention through multidisciplinary approach and intervention psychotherapy, psychosocial, social, medical and legal counseling. Our goal is to minimize the effects of trauma-related disorders in the lives of tortured, raped or abused victims, and helping their emotional healing.
