The study researched and used qualitative research to examine the effects of bomb blast on survivors' experience as how he was affected socio economically and psychologically. Results showed that although the event may have taken several years, its effects had yet to wear off on the participants. Those who have survived nonetheless bear scars that serve as constant reminders of their tragedy. They are tormented by psychological issues which, in comparison with the problems and pains due to physical damage, are often harder to deal with for them. The majority of the participants said they had frequent stress-related psychological symptoms, as well as additional symptoms like melancholy, depression, anxiety, impatience, loss of focus in daily tasks, nightmares, and incident flashbacks. Survivors of terrorist bombings have also suffered major long-term socio-economic consequences, including unemployment, concern about their children's schooling, and deteriorating health. In addition, poor government support and insufficient rehabilitative help, together with decreasing social-economic status, are one of the most important challenges facing this group of survivors, who have to be dealt with immediately and appropriately. For individuals, families, children and big groups of survivors and respondents, special strategies are described. Finally, we address how specialists of mental health might be important consultants in community recovery efforts.
