As it can be emotionally distressing to testify at the trials about the Khmer Rouge era, the court arranges psychological support for witnesses. Persons not testifying but nonetheless in need of counselling and support should contact their provincial office of the Mental Health Committee of the Ministry of Health or specialist NGOs that have clinics and doctors available in different provinces, such as Transcultural Psychosocial Organisation and Social Services of Cambodia.
