During the full-scale war, the mental health and well-being of Ukrainian children has drastically deteriorated. According to a UNICEF estimate, 1.5 million Ukrainian children are at risk for depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mental health problems. Ukrainian and Israeli experts have undertaken to help children cope with stress, overcome their fears, and feel safe. Together they practise hibuki therapy in pilot schools all over Ukraine. How does the experience of Israel, a country that is constantly in the state of war, help Ukrainian children?
