The psychopathological impact of trauma on children and adolescents: understanding and addressing their mental health condition through helplines

Dear Friends and Colleagues

Many leading associations, including the Association of Psychiatrists of Ukraine, the Polish Psychiatric Association, the Association of Psychologists of Ukraine, and the Association of Psychotherapists of Ukraine, with the support of partners and embassies, took the initiative to hold the First International Scientific and Methodological Forum "Psychological Trauma of War".

Over the past few months, against the background of military operations, sociologists and psychologists have recorded a steady increase in the manifestations of psychological stress among the population of Ukraine. A steady increase in social aggression, apathy, and hopelessness are increasing. It is obvious that all these manifestations on such a scale are a direct consequence of the social crisis generated by the aggression against Ukraine. Scientists, practitioners, and experts in the field of mental health need to develop effective practices that will allow coping with these large-scale challenges. We need to discuss and implement a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach that would allow us to deal with the consequences of post-traumatic syndrome of the post-war society.

Within the framework of the event, using the multifaceted experience of its participants, we aim to develop unified approaches to solving the problem of global overload of the psycho-emotional state of Ukrainian society, objectively caused by aggression against Ukraine. We expect that in the course of a professional discussion, scientists, specialists, and experts could offer the society, the authorities of Ukraine, and foreign partners real ways to eliminate the most acute psychological crisis in which Ukraine has found itself as a result of Russian aggression.
