Supporting Ukrainians' Mental Health

Mindspa is one of the most popular mental health mobile apps in Ukraine. With over 100,000 Ukrainians users before the start of the war, we felt the moral obligation to do everything we could to help our users emotionally. Today we announce our initiatives with the aim to spread the word even further, so that more Ukrainians can be aware of and make use our resources.

These are some of the most significant actions taken so far:


Needless to say, the trauma Ukrainians are going through these days is huge. The sound of sirens, the bombing, the need to leave their homes to find shelter. The emotional scars caused by the war are going to last a long time. Therefore, we decided to make a therapeutic program to tackle PTSD free for all Ukrainians. In the first 24 hours, more than 1,000 people requested access. 

Here’s the link to claim the free program:

Child Trauma

Children are the biggest victims of the war. Recent statistics say that more than 10,000,000 Ukrainians have been displaced, with half of them having fled abroad to Poland, Romania, and other neighbour countries. According to the UN, an estimated 4,800,000 of displaced Ukrainians are children. One of the most difficult tasks for a parent is to sit down with their children and explain what is happening to help them process the trauma. Therefore, we have decided to create a program specifically dedicated to Ukrainians to support them with this task. The program is being prepared by psychologists with experience in child trauma. Resources will include both materials to help parents and short educational videos that can be watched together by parents and child.

Many of our non-Ukrainian users have asked us how they could help and/or contribute, so we came up with a solution. The idea came from the tradition of a “suspended coffee” in Naples, Italy, where a cup of coffee is paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. In the same fashion, we created a “suspended therapeutic” where users can buy a course to be donated to Ukrainian users. We have already received hundreds of contributions, which gave our Ukrainian users access to a wide range of therapeutic resources completely for free. 

For anyone interested in contributing, here's the link:


The disturbing images of atrocities coming from the conflict have shocked the world, and consequently, a lot of people are now dealing with a strong anxiety. This was confirmed also by our recent survey, where anxiety turned out to be the most common feeling experienced by users of our mobile app. For this reason, we have created a new in-depth therapeutic program to tackle this issue.

The program is already accessible on Mindspa for Ukrainians, while it will be available in English and other languages in the next few days.


We believe in the power of cooperation, and thus have partnered with donation platform Altruisto to streighten their fundraing effort with the goal to supply food and hygiene products to the inhabitants of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. For anyone who donates to the cause, we offer a free access to our Mindspa therapeutic programs.

The campaign is nearing $5,000 in donations so far:


A number of employers from various countries have reached to us in the past few weeks asking how to boost the mental wellbeing of their employees, and we have gladly provided digital resources to these companies. To be as supportive as we can, we decided to offer them to Ukrainians companies for free.

We have started the production of a short film titled “Eyes of Ukraine”, where we interview and give voice to Ukrainian women who have fled their country. The focus will be on the mental health consequences of running away from war and will be recorded in Bulgaria, where many refugees have arrived to reunite with family and friends. The goal of the documentary is to reach Russian viewers to spread awareness about the consequences of the war, providing real information despite the challenges posed by censorship on independent media.

The documentary will be released in May.

Apart from all the above, in the past few weeks our team of psychologists have also created a lot of new content for our users. We have published a series of articles on Mindspa, and sent users push notifications to remind them to take care of themselves, sharing tips on how to maintain calm despite the challenging times.
