Ukraine: Treating the mental health consequences of conflict
In Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine, psychologist Ihor Ohdanskyi and his team provide mental health care to people caught up in the war.
The team from Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) treat people displaced by the fighting, war-wounded people and even other healthcare staff and carers – all people who may be suffering from the many different mental health impacts associated with living through war or witnessing violence.
MSF and the war in Ukraine
Fighting in Ukraine has killed or injured thousands of people, while more than eight million refugees are currently scattered across Europe.
Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) teams are working to deliver emergency medical aid to people still in Ukraine, as well as those now seeking safety in neighbouring countries.
