My name is Valeriia Pryhozhiya and I am the head of the PCA therapy section at the Ukrainian Umbrella Association of Psychotherapists. Currently I am in the city of Dnipro, Ukraine.
Since the beginning of the war, a volunteer group of psychologists has been operating in the Dnipro, providing free assistance to many people who now need professional support.
Now the Dnipro is the first peaceful city from the front line. There are many refugees from Luhansk, Donetsk and Kharkiv regions now in our city. The wounded are brought here first of all. But as in all of Ukraine, sirens and explosions are heard every day.
We continue the traditions of the Maidan Psychological Crisis Service. Our specialists have extensive experience. Now we have resumed our activities as the Psychological Crisis Service of Dnipro and Dnipropetrovsk region, which was launched in 2014.
The main areas of work are:
- work with migrants,
- work with the military,
- work with families of servicemen,
- work with the wounded in hospitals,
- support of the families of the victims,
- training and supervision of specialists.
- telephone counseling hotline 0800330769
If you have the opportunity to provide such support, please contact Valeria Prigogine
