Psychologists and psychotherapists published a first aid booklet to support the mental health of those affected by war (Languages: Ukrainian / Russian / English / German)
Living in a war zone, fleeing one, or fearing for your life can leave wounds that are not only physical but also psychological. Long after the events have occurred, it is not uncommon for feelings such as fear, helplessness, and despair to linger. While people seeking protection in Germany can receive psychological support from psychologists and psychotherapists, there is currently still little information on how those affected can strengthen their mental health themselves and where they can find further psychological help.
As a mental health company, we at HelloBetter want to make a small contribution to supporting those affected by war. Therefore, our team of psychologists and psychotherapists has created a brochure that provides information to those affected about what they can do for their mental health and where they can get further support.
This brochure is available for download on our website and can be downloaded in the following languages:
🇺🇸 🇬🇧 English
We hope to make a small contribution with this. The document can also be forwarded to any interested organisation and, of course, to all those concerned. If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
