Empatia unites Dutch and Ukrainian experts in the field of mental health.
With the beginning of the full-scale war, we organized access to psychological support for displaced Ukrainians on a voluntary basis, which gave us understanding and experience in creating a mental health program.
The program aims to create accessible psychological help for Ukrainians who have been displaced by the war.
We believe that everyone deserves high-quality psychological help.
