Since February 2022, Russia has been attacking Ukraine with repeated and deadly offensives on the territory of this country, which borders the European Union. Fleeing the fighting and massive destruction, many Ukrainians, adults and children alike, have since taken to the road of exile. War triggers immense stress, which can develop into post-traumatic stress disorder. The first to be affected are, of course, the direct victims, especially in France, the refugees. But those involved in warfare (soldiers, humanitarian aid workers, diplomats, journalists) are also confronted, whether they are in the field of operations or whether the conflict revives an older traumatic memory. A resident of a peaceful country can also be destabilized by a conflict elsewhere. However, there are ways of looking after your mental health and that of your loved ones.
