Free Mental Health

By Marija Saric | Project Coordinator

Wings of Hope (BIH) is an organization with a remarkable history of offering essential mental health support to children and adults. The roots of this initiative trace back to 1995 when the devastating consequences of war on mental health became impossible to ignore. The Bosnian War had disproportionately affected young people, disrupting their childhoods with the constant threat of death and severely hindering their access to education. As a result, many children found themselves without stability in their daily lives.

These shared experiences forged a unique perspective within the Bosnian community, endowing them with the remarkable ability to empathize with the victims of war in Ukraine. They understood the profound impact that conflict can have on the mental well-being of individuals, especially children.

In the year 2023, the Foundation Wings of Hope has continued its unwavering commitment to providing vital mental health services, encompassed by a comprehensive multi-systemic integrative model of work. This model involves collaboration between various professionals, including psychiatrists, psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, pedagogues, teachers, and legal experts. This holistic approach ensures that individuals affected by war trauma receive the comprehensive support they need to rebuild their lives.

Generous donations to the project through GlobalGiving have empowered Wings of Hope to extend their much-needed services to the victims of the war in Ukraine. Their dedicated therapists, specializing in war trauma, have been able to provide psychotherapy in English to Ukrainians seeking help. Additionally, Wings of Hope has been instrumental in training other psychologists to effectively deliver trauma support to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
