The Ukrainian Mental Health Support Program provides emotional support, professional consultations, and practical tools to help Ukrainian nationals stabilize their emotional well-being, preserve their mental health, and adapt to life in the United States. The program aims to create a warm and supportive atmosphere for recent Ukrainian arrivals while improving access to mental health experts and other professional services. Clients can find community amidst complex emotions, stress, grief, uncertainty, and trauma recovery.  

Adults can share honestly, access help, and get valuable advice about American life, while children meet and make new friends. Teenagers can receive mentoring as they adapt to their new environments and continue their education and paths to success. 

Eligible individuals are encouraged to contact the IILA representative below to participate and receive support on their journey to emotional stability and integration.
