Project Summary:

The project focuses on psychological help for 100 000 Ukrainians.

We provide the organization of psychological assistance to the civilian population, volunteers, refugees, militiamen of territorial units, children, and adolescents. We respond promptly to requests for help through an extensive network of our professional connections based on professional organizations, public associations, and university environments. We continuously provide free assistance in refugee assistance centers, shelters, our own counseling centers, universities, and dormitories. We provide training in crisis psychology for both professionals and the general public. We provide supervisory support to working clinical and crisis psychologists who work with victims – civilians and employees of transport, social and communal, and other organizations.
