Taking care of yourself is important now. It will help you make better decisions, act thoughtfully, and help not only yourself, but also your loved ones in a time of uncertainty and crisis. A counselor can help you learn how to address the current situation and begin to restore your life.

Do not ignore your emotions: fear, sadness, hatred or despair. They will not disappear anywhere, but might affect your psychological state and physical well-being every day.

Call the IOM Emotional Support Hotline 0-800-211-444 to get one or a series of consultations from professional psychologists.

The toll-free and anonymous hotline operates from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends (Kyiv time).

Counselling is available in English, Ukrainian and Russian.
