Since the war in Ukraine began, the European Brain Council has been monitoring the situation closely and looking to identify ways it could provide support. The situation on the ground has had- and will continue to have – tremendous impact on the mental wellbeing of people, as well as immense disruption on regular, life-saving care needs for people living with chronic conditions. Our members have mobilised multiple response efforts, which EBC wants to amplify – all can be found below.

If you have an ongoing support action or resource available, please don’t hesitate to contact us:
