This world-famous de-occupied city in the Kyiv region has become a symbol of resistance and invincibility of the Ukrainian people.

Its residents had to survive the horrors of war, and they need psychological rehabilitation to return to a full life. Back in June 2022, 2 months after the liberation of Bucha, a Center for Psychological Assistance was opened here.

The institution currently functions as part of the All-Ukrainian Mental Health Program under the patronage of First Lady Olena Zelenska.

Today, the Center is a team of 13 psychologists who provide assistance to released prisoners and their relatives, as well as to those who survived the occupation.

“It is important that the Bucha Center for Psychological Assistance was organized by Ukrainian specialists. I am grateful to the volunteer psychologists who initiated the creation of such a center, as well as to the Bucha City Council and international donors for their support. This is the first experimental Ukrainian project that will lay the foundation for the development of psychological services in other liberated communities,” said Iryna Vereshchuk.

We are reminding that the team of the Ministry of Reintegration visited the Lutsk geriatric nursing home.
