  • Together for peace – how to help?

    The Bridge is a project created with the intent of promoting union and inclusion, whose mission is to ease the accessibility of psychological services, to fight stigma and to support diversity – the opposite of a war’s. It’s with great sadness that we witness it happening. As a facilitating bridge, we leave you with some initiatives you can support, to help in whichever way is possible for you:

    An activist initiative page that compiles useful information for Ukrainians wishing to come to Portugal, and for anyone wishing to help

    International red cross committee

    Portugal’s government support page

    MBway’s “Support Ukraine” initiative (this one may not be available without a portuguese NIF, but you can still use it to check the humanitarian missions listed)

    If you are a mental health professional or a volunteer who wants to deal with war refugees,  you need to know more about trauma. Take a look at this platform for online workshops, with some available in english.

    Also, witnessing this war can cause an array of reactions – its natural: from fear, to anxiety, fatigue, among many many others. We remind you that we’re available, every working day, from 2pm to 3pm, in our chat service to welcome you – ukrainians, russians, portuguese, any nationality. Outside this schedule, please e-mail us at, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

    A kind hug to all of you,

    The Bridge’s team.
