Online platform for psychological help

Together with the partners, a team of volunteers working for our foundation has prepared a platform for psychological consultations and online work. Psychologists from different countries of the world have an opportunity to quickly and conveniently join our volunteer initiative, register on the platform and open their online office.

Every psychologist has at his or her disposal a series of possibilities for convenient and effective work related to individual consultations or group therapy. In the online office, psychologists add a photo and video materials, their specialty and experience, professional certificates, etc. Users can easily and conveniently find the specialist, choose a convenient time and day in the psychologist's calendar and go to the online office to receive a consultation.

All the communication is confidential. Users, whether soldiers or civilians, women or teenagers, volunteers or critical infrastructure workers, receive free individual psychological help or a rehabilitation course with the involvement of a group of experts.

The platform operates 24/7, and, thanks to the community of psychologists from different countries, consultations and help may be provided at any time. The platform is equipped with a separate block for the training and professional development of psychologists at closed training sessions and supervisory lessons. This makes it possible to quickly increase the number of psychologists who are ready to join the initiative of our MINDY charitable foundation, which is aimed at providing help to the Ukrainians who have suffered from the war with Russia.

Areas of activity

Military hospitals

One of the activity areas of the Foundation is to support the operation of psychology rooms at military hospitals. Our team fills such rooms with equipment and furniture for efficient individual and group therapeutic sessions. On the platform, full-time military hospital psychologists can:

  • get free training
  • improve their professional qualification
  • have supervision
  • study contemporary world literature in psychology and NATO-approved aid protocols in Ukrainian.

While wounded soldiers are in rehabilitation at a hospital, their family members may be offered free consultations, either group or individual sessions, with psychologists working for our Foundation. Working with soldiers' families is also important because many combatants, after being in a combat zone, may show symptoms of depression, acute reaction to battle stress or injury, and anxiety disorder. There is also a risk of them developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The resumption of positive relationships with relatives and friends will, in particular, also help soldiers adapt to a peaceful life. Having talked to our experts, the family members will know how to contribute to the soldier's adaptation and will be able to timely reveal a pattern of behavior showing that he/she may be developing PTSD.

Furthermore, the Foundation also helps critical infrastructure workers and their families, in particular the State Emergency Service of Ukraine (SESU), utility workers and volunteers. At the time of war, they work in extremely difficult and exhausting conditions, which may also have an adverse effect on their mental health.

Post-Hospital Psychological Help for Soldiers and Their Families. Employment

Helping with socialization upon return from the combat zone

According to global statistics, every fifth combatant suffers from nervous and mental disorders; among those who were wounded and maimed, it is every third. The gravest consequences can be seen several months after return from the front line: frequent conflicts with family members, relatives and co-workers, outbursts of rage, alcohol and drug abuse. Due to mental instability, an insignificant loss or difficulty may drive a person to suicide. Our experts help soldiers and their families go through this difficult stage of rehabilitation and socialization in the "civilized world" together. We also carry out awareness-building activities and explain that such behavior is a temporary trauma that has to be treated.

Apart from the traditional protocols used in this field of work, we employ art therapy, hippotherapy, and occupational therapy, involve and integrate soldiers into sports. Where necessary, we help them with prosthetics in Ukraine and abroad under partnership programs.

Helping with studies and employment

Other mental phenomena that may be experienced by veterans include pessimistic conditions and feelings of neglect by people around, loss of meaning in life or loss of self-confidence. Work can help avoid such consequences; therefore, along with the therapy, our Foundation cares about the employment of soldiers, their education, mastering of new professions, particularly in the field of IT.

Psychological help for refugees

Our Foundation also works with refugees. Millions of Ukrainians who were forced to leave their homes have to cope with anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder on their own. Many of them witnessed the atrocities committed by the invaders or were at the war's epicenter.

We pay particular attention to working with children and teenagers. Due to children's and teenagers' unshaped psyche and weak volitional control of emotional reactions, the war experience may adversely affect their future life. Insomnia and mental tension lead to behavioral disorders on the social and interpersonal level, which manifests itself in the low need for achievements, poor school results, inclination to conflicts, and social disadaptation. Our experts are ready to help them cope with anxiety and uncertainty and comfortably adjust to the new realities of life.

  1. Advice and assistance in obtaining material aid and cash payments for members of the military servants and their families;
  2. Assistance in tracing missing soldiers;
  3. Advising on the possibility of changing the conditions of military service;
  4. Advising soldiers and their families on other martial law matters.

Technologies and innovations

Our team actively works on promising scientific and technical developments together with rehabilitation centers with the involvement of experienced rehabilitation specialists, neurophysiologists and robotics specialists.

In particular, work is underway to introduce VR technologies into rehabilitation practice in order to increase the effectiveness of restorative therapy. We are also working on developments in the field of neurofeedback therapy. This type of therapy is an excellent way to heal the brain, and when used in conjunction with psychotherapy that heals the mind, allows for more successful treatment results. We help to improve technological hardware and software complexes taking into account the current needs and methods of physical and psychotherapeutic rehabilitation on an ongoing basis.

Our team pays special attention to technical developments in the field of prosthetics, namely the design and production of temporary prostheses for the military and civilians.

The R&D team of volunteers of our foundation is also actively working on promising developments related to monitoring and assisting in the demining of territories using robotic solutions. We are actively involved in the initiatives of the State Emergency Service and the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Work is currently underway to prepare for the mass production of developments and their use in mined areas. Unfortunately, due to Russian aggression and active hostilities on the territory of Ukraine, almost 300,000 square kilometers require humanitarian demining, which may take up to 10 years. We consider it vitally necessary to do the maximum in the direction of demining Ukraine in order to save as many lives as possible of our citizens, to reduce the number of traumatic cases and injuries.

Psychological Support of Prosthetics

Due to loss of limbs, subsequent amputation and prosthetics, a person has to adapt to new living conditions. By applying an effective model of psychological help, our experts help:

  • accept the loss of limbs
  • prepare for a prosthetic surgery
  • with post-surgical rehabilitation
  • with correction of a false understanding of the present and future life due to the loss of limbs
  • with phantom limb pains

The therapeutic program is worked out individually for every person by a psychotherapist and medical psychologist who is specialized in post-amputation rehabilitation.

Psychological Help for Journalists

Journalists who cover the war risk not only their lives but their mental health as well. The post-traumatic syndrome, which traumatizes the psyche, and the emotional burnout syndrome are phenomena that are often found among journalists. Understanding the consequences of working in war zones will help a journalist better adjust to the difficult and dangerous working conditions and more easily cope with post-traumatic stress itself.

Psychologists working on our Foundation's online platform prepare journalists before they are sent to a combat zone, for psychological risks awaiting them and provide further psychological support after they return home.
