What is the STRONG project?

It is a program aimed at supporting young people from Ukraine with the goal of promoting the mental health of children and adolescents escaping war, and their successful integration into their peer communities, education system, and society. 

How do STRONG meetings work?

Psychosocial support is led by trained guides in the area of psychology who, in regular weekly group and individual meetings with the participants, will go through self-regulation (self-control) training and the analysis of their own thinking in favor of positive thinking.
