Ipso’s support for Ukraine

Hands holding each other and Ukrainian flag

As a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to psychosocial and mental health support and for vulnerable people, we will support refugees within Ukraine and from Ukraine in Germany and Europe.

In cooperation with the Rotary Club Konstanz-Mainau, Ipso had implemented the project “Let’s Talk – Psychosocial Care for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and war-affected population” in Ukraine from 2017 to 2019. The project took place in cooperation with Ukrainian Rotary Clubs in Kharkiv and Chernivtsi as well as with the universities of Kharkiv and Chernivtsi.

30 psychologists received further training in VBC (Value Based Counseling). This enabled them to offer online counseling via the Ipso-Care platform for people in the Russian border region. Following this, the Ukrainian partners founded their own psychosocial organization (Upso).

Due to the latest developments, Ipso has reactivated its platform for Ukrainian psychologists and finances the sessions held through donations.

Support for Ukrainians in Germany

To support Ukrainians who have fled to Germany and Europe, Ipso will train Ukrainian psychologists in Germany in Value Based Counseling. Subsequently, they will offer Online counseling in their native language for Ukrainians in Germany and Europe through Ipso-care.

Ukrainian psychologists can apply here for further training at Ipso.
