The project promotes the preservation and support of health, delivers quality health information in simple language on a peer-to-peer basis, and expands and provides access to mental health services for populations affected by war.

The speakers at the event were not only medical experts accompanying and developing the field, but also media representatives, in particular bloggers and athletes. From medical experts, participants received knowledge about myths regarding health, sports and injuries, sexual literacy, prevention of strokes and heart attacks, and the impact of social networks on mental health.

“This forum for me is about the future of our state, about young people who will share knowledge about what lifestyle to lead, how to eat right, how to prevent diseases, how to introduce a culture of healthy habits. We must think and take care of our health today in order to have a happy and healthy tomorrow, – said Natalya Litvinskaya, director of the health department of the Lvov Regional State Administration.

Feedback from event participants became valuable for the organizers – student governments, parents, teachers and school principals on their knowledge about health, in order to subsequently be able to implement the project in schools.

As Ukrinform reported, the development of psychosocial support was discussed at the forum in Lviv. In particular, the head of the Lviv Regional Military Administration, Maxim Kozitsky, called on the relevant ministries to systematize work to support the military, veterans and their families, and not rely only on volunteer and charitable initiatives.
