One of these aspects is the impact of the crisis on the mental health of the population, which will recover long after the end of the special regime. In the context of the current situation, we have decided to respond strategically and in the long run. Mental health needs our help more than ever.
We had perceive the situation related to the spread of coronavirus very sensitively and responsibly from the beginning. The alarming findings about the impact of the crisis on the mental health of the population, which will be recovering long after the end of the special regime, have prompted us towards more fundamental responses.
We started supporting the Crisis Helpline, which was established by OZ IPčko due to real needs and a huge increase in requests for help.
We also supported the establishment and activities of the Mental Health Helpline Initiative. In cooperation with three non-governmental organizations, which operate the three largest helplines, we decided to contribute to systemic education, solutions to prevention, and emotional and psychological support of the population of Slovakia.
