WFSBP Statement of support for Ukraine

WFSBP Statement of support for Ukraine

The World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry (WFSBP) stands together with other professional associations and societies, and the international community at large, in condemning Russian invasion of Ukraine and call for an end to the atrocities which have so far resulted in thousands of Ukrainian civilians losing their lives at the hands of the Russian forces.

In addition to asking member societies of the WFSBP to do whatever is possible to respond to the immediate and urgent health needs of the Ukrainian people, we also call on member societies to extend mental health outreach and support to those in need.

As a global network of professionals in psychiatry, we can support global efforts to mitigate the adverse mental health consequences for the people of Ukraine which are likely to be dire, both for those displaced and those staying behind, and for successive generations. As well, WFSBP will work with its affiliate Societies and other professional organizations in doing whatever is in its capacity to support the educational needs of Ukrainian students pursuing research work in mental health who are impacted by the current situation.
