Де ветерани АТО та їхні родини можуть пройти реабілітацію?
Vadym Svyrydenko, the President of Ukraine’s Representative on ATO participants’ rehabilitation issues, and Natalya Zaretska, manager of the Office of the President of Ukraine’s Representative on ATO participants’ rehabilitation issues, are in the studio.
The guests explained how rehabilitation and habilitation differ. According to them, rehabilitation is serious and systematic, continuous work, not treatment and rest.
When a person comes back from the frontline, they go to another level of their life. It is necessary to adapt these people to their families, and their families should be adapted to such people. Here, great work of psychologists is needed to show to which extent a person has changed and what should be done to them. For sure, you must not pity veterans. You have to rehabilitate them, Vadym Svyrydenko says.
Presenters provided addresses and telephone numbers of organizations where ATO veterans and their families can receive quality psychosocial support and psychological help.
Yuliya Resenchuk from Kiev tells about her active social life. She is a wheel-chair user. The girl has been Head of “Asotsiatsiya inklyuzyvnoyi krayiny” (Inclusive Country Association) Charity Fund for some years now. She jumps with a parachute, drive a car on her own, and goes in for equestrian sports on professional level. Yuliya says that many people with disabilities don’t go to the streets because they are afraid of the city’s inaccessibility.
A package on how Yuliya checked Kiev for the level of accessibility for people with disabilites was prepared by Liza Kuzmenko.
The President of Ukraine’s Representative on ATO participants’ rehabilitation issues, Vadym Svyrydenko, told in the studio that there are plans to open, under the President’s aegis, a new center of psychological help for ATO veterans. “It is planned that this will be in Kiev but if specialists come and say about another city this may be anywhere,” Vadym Svyrydenko said.
