The Relationship of Trauma to Mental Disorders Among Trafficked and Sexually Exploited Girls and Women.

Health Consequences of Trafficking. Last updated September 1, 2005 The act of trafficking and the attendant human rights violations can have very serious consequences for the victim. Women who have been trafficked may suffer from serious physical and mental health problems. Service providers who work with victims should be aware of the severe and interrelated health consequences that result from trafficking.

Trafficking victims often suffer from serious physical abuse and physical exhaustion, as well as starvation. Typical injuries can include broken bones, concussion, bruising or burns, as well as other injuries consistent with assault. Some of these serious injuries can cause lasting health problems and may require long-term treatment.

Research shows that the impact of polyvictimization is much more powerful than even multiple events of a single type of victimization. - National Children’s Advocacy Center The types of physical and psychological abuse human trafficking victims experience often lead to serious mental or emotional health consequences, including feelings of severe guilt, posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, substance abuse (alcohol or narcotics), and eating disorders.
