The conference “Hidden Wounds of War” will bring together specialists from Europe and North America, as well as Ukrainian professionals and volunteers and representatives of international aid organizations. We will bring a carefully selected group of 50 Ukrainians to Lithuania, most of them persons who are actively working with veterans in the country. In addition to the approximately 20 speakers, we will invite several dozen experts to attend the conference and subsequently participate in the working groups on May 22. On May 23 the Ukrainian delegates will be offered a one-day seminar on substance abuse issues among military and veterans, and on self-support and resilience. The goal of the conference is to provide an overview of state-of-the-art rehabilitation programs and initiatives, explore avenues of collaboration and coordination, and garner support for this crucial long-term effort to help Ukraine deal with the disastrous consequences of this war.
