Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a type of mental illness many people experience brought by extreme and distressing situations (Lebow, 2022). The most common cause of PTSD that women and children are experiencing are brought by rape and abuse. In a study by Elklit and Christiansen (2013), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is frequent after a rape incident and other forms of sexual assaults. However, it has been demonstrated that the risk factors for PTSD after rape differ from those who experience PTSD after a non-sexual assault. This prospective study looked at the risk variables for the severity of PTSD in 148 female sexual assault victims who are looking for care. A considerable amount of traumatization affected almost 70% of the victims, while 45% of them reported symptoms that were likely PTSD symptoms. In consideration with these findings, the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Rehabilitation Center for Women and Children is a comfort zone for people with PTSD. In a study by Stepanova (2017) this rehabilitation center has a concept that looks after the patient's mental health, offers various activities, and teaches individuals. It adopts the process of healing, restoration of their function, and independence. The facility integrates Biophilic design that is divided into three categories which are the direct experience of nature, the indirect experience of nature, and the experience of space and place that helps the patients to experience a multi-sensory contact with nature to provide relief and positive interaction between people and nature (Kellert & Calabrese, 2015). The Rehabilitation Center's trauma-informed design has developed as a new area of study focusing on the design of the built environment to promote well-being and to lessen the effects of trauma and other related illnesses PTSD (Owen & Crane, 2022). In conclusion, the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Rehabilitation Center for Women and Children is a coping sanctuary that features sustainable ways and as a haven for traumatized women and children where they can gain their maximum recovery
