Wounded Warrior Ukraine (WWU) is a project of Healing War Scars Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in the United States in December 2014 by Dr. Roman Torgovitsky, Harvard-trained biomedical scientist and social entrepreneur. The overarching mission of the project is to provide psychological rehabilitative assistance to Ukrainians affected by visible and invisible wounds of war. While the idea behind project’s creation was Maidan-born, WWU’s mission transcends political gaps by serving and empowering both veterans and civilians.
War-induced psychological trauma heightens rates of veterans’ depression, divorce, and suicide. It also impacts veterans’ families, creating serious long term negative effects on society. Experience of other countries, including the United States, shows that only a few veterans are willing to admit to themselves that war trauma has affected them. Seeking psychological help is often considered a taboo, especially in post-Soviet states. As a result, many veterans self-medicate with alcohol and drugs, as well as seek out dangerous and criminal experiences.
WWU launched a unique program in Ukraine that trains Ukrainian veterans in providing peer-to-peer support and counseling. This innovative training is based on the premise that while many veterans resist opening up to psychotherapists, they naturally bond with other veterans who experienced war.
