EU project provides psychosocial support for families of military personnel in Ukraine

To increase support for families of military personnel in Ukraine, the Ukrainian NGO ‘Public movement for empowering women in Ukraine’ has launched a new project supported by the EU.

The project provides psychological support to military families over the phone.

The Psychosocial Support Service is open every day from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm (including weekends). Calls are free and confidential. You can contact the centre by phone in Ukraine on 0 800 332 720, in Poland on +48226022512, through the support chat on the website and on Telegram (@pidtrymkainua).

 “Wives, mothers and other relatives of servicemen often call, emotionally exhausted by the search for solutions to various social issues. And since our line is staffed by psychologists, we can provide psychological support in addition to a detailed explanation of how to deal with a particular situation,” said project manager Nataliya Umerenkova.
