Up to 15 Million Ukrainians Face Severe Mental Distress Caused by War
According to the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine, approximately 15 million Ukrainians will be in strong need of psychological support in the near future, and up to 4 million may start drug treatment.
For those in need the Ministry of Healthcare has produced a guide containing recommendations on how to identify problems and avoid severe consequences. The recommendations are focused on mood, behavior and physical changes that should be considered alarm bells.
Earlier the United Nations stated that at least 12 million people have fled their homes in Ukraine since Russia launched all-out war.
