To effectively assist Syrian refugees arriving in Canada, adequate data-based psychological assistance is required. The provision of psychological services should not depend on the diagnosis of PTSD or the presence of related psychiatric disorders (for example, depression). Conversely, offering support to all refugees seeking help, including those with only subliminal symptoms, can help people cope with adaptation, with potential problems they may have in integrating into their new community already. cope with anticipated sociocultural change.

There is evidence to support the use of the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire (HTQ), the Hopkins-25 Symptom List (HSCL-25), and Post-Migration Daily Difficulties (PMLD) to exclude cases other than post-traumatic stress disorder ( PTSD), and the use of the Physician-Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) for the diagnosis of PTSD in Iraqi, Kurdish and Syrian refugees in Canada. Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) is the psychological treatment with the largest proven information base in this population. This systematic review reported on the prevalence of assessment measures, treatments, and biomarkers used in the diagnosis and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder in Iraqi, Kurdish, and Syrian refugees.
