Since February 2022, Russia has been attacking Ukraine with repeated and deadly offensives on the territory of this country, bordering the European Union. Fleeing the fighting and massive destruction, many Ukrainians, adults and children, have since taken the road to exile. The war triggers immense stress that can turn into post-traumatic stress disorder. The first to be affected are of course the direct victims, and in France in particular, the refugees. But those involved in the war (military, humanitarian, diplomats, journalists) are also confronted with it, whether they are in the field of operations or whether the conflict revives an older traumatic memory. An inhabitant of a peaceful country can also be destabilized by a conflict that is taking place elsewhere. However, there are ways to take care of your mental health and that of your loved ones.
