When the normal rhythm of life is disrupted and various constraints have to be observed, many people feel tension, anxiety, anger, sadness, or depression. Such emotions are understandable and not reprehensible; however, it is very important to do everything that is in your power to help yourself and the people close to you to cope with the negative. Consulting a professional psychologist or hearing a person out is one of the most effective ways to avoid negative psychological consequences of a crisis.
The Ministry of Education and Science has compiled a list of available resources related to receiving psycho-emotional assistance for various groups of society:
This collection of resources includes hotlines, contacts for victims of violence, etc., and it is possible not only to call, but also to communicate via e-mails or discuss your issues on Skype. All resources are free of charge.
In order to ensure the availability of psychological support for people in crisis, psychological support therapy groups of up to 20 people are now allowed to gather in the open air, subject to observing a 2-metre distance and using mouth and nose coverings.
