The direction of psychological assistance continues to be provided within several projects of ADRA Ukraine. In August, a group of psychologists visited Dnipro where they held six meetings in the format of support groups for IDPs from hot spots of Ukraine, among them are internally displaced persons from such cities as Kharkiv, Lysychansk, Severodonetsk, Bakhmut, Mariupol, and Velyka Novosilka village, etc.
The meetings took place in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to this, people felt attention and acceptance of psychologists and organizers of the event, easily communicated and freely participated in the discussion. The participants were trained and also learned about anti-anxiety psychological drugs, about hormones of happiness and mood, about how to help themselves to be calmer and a little happier in this difficult time of war.
During the meetings, participants received emotional support and structured tips from psychologists on how to help themselves and their relatives to live on. In the end, there were many smiles and words of thanks to the charitable organization and directly to psychologists of the project for such activities and useful information.
In August, almost 1,000 new beneficiaries have received psychological support, among whom a large number are women, children and the elderly. In total, about 5,000 people have received direct assistance since the start of implementation.
