Ukraine too often loses veterans to suicide, and this problem needed to be addressed, Lifeline Ukraine was established to provide help for veterans and their family members first and foremost, the hotline now serves all people from Ukraine in any language they chose.

The project was initiated in 2019 at the request of the then Acting Minister of Health, Dr. Ulana Suprun. The project also enjoys support from the Ministries of Veterans’ Affairs, the Ministry of Social Policy, and the Ministry of Defense.
Paul Niland lives in Kyiv, and is a mental-health war correspondent. He runs Lifeline Ukraine, the country’s first suicide and mental health services provider, and in our conversation he explains what it is like on the ground in Ukraine, the ground war and what he sees happening next.
