I have freedom, but i’m not free in this country

“I am from Ghana and I came to Denmark as an asylum seeker seven years ago. As a displaced person, I have gone through stressful events. I have lost so many things. My family, my home and my livelihood. I arrived to Denmark with complete uncertainty about my future, and now I also got trauma from living in the asylum center. Even though I’m strong, the conditions in the camp is so tough without any activity. You are just waiting to get the chance to work and get a family. I have freedom, but I’m not free in this country.”
“After long time in the camp with mostly physical treatment, I have started to think that mental treatment is more important, because it can help me to find a way to overcome my trauma from the past and from the waiting time in Denmark.”
