In war everyone loses, fundamental rights are lost, the environment is seriously damaged, freedoms go up in smoke.
We, psychologists for human rights, are deeply shocked at the unprovoked aggression to civilians in Ukraine. We are concerned about the ongoing violations of human rights and the humanitarian consequences, the loss of dignity and freedoms. We anticipate immediate and long-term psychological impact on individuals, families and communities.
We support our colleagues in the region, also all those who are dealing with some very difficult emotions as a result of the invasion of Ukraine. We support advancing democracy, human rights, peace and decency and combatting crimes against humanity.
We support all those who are dealing with difficult times resulting from acts of war, aggression, and political turmoil, in every part of the world.
