Whilst there are difficulties in rescuingn students in Ukraine, many of those who have been rescued and returned to India appear to have had terrible experiences, which is a major concern for their parents. Those students who have actually been there and witnessed the war scenario require assistance in erasing those war scenes from their memories so that they can return to their normal lives. Psychiatrists or Psychologists should be consulted for such issues as students will need time to process the entire situation because what they have experienced is not something that happens every day.
MedScapeIndia Aryan Medical Educational Trust provides a helping hand towards the stranded students who went to Ukraine to seek higher education in Medical. A helpline specifically for medical students has been established. They have a group of physicians who has been volunteered to serve the underprivileged wherever possible.
Dr Sunita Dube, Ace Radiologist, Founder and Chairperson of Medscapeindia, is worried about the young children and has assembled a team of Psychiatric and Psychologists to give complete help in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Students who experienced trauma during the Russia-Ukraine crisis had significantly higher rates of depression, anxiety, distorted cognition, personality deficits, and lower levels of social support, which may represent a social and psychological vulnerability for developing psychiatric disorders after these traumatic experiences and uncertainty for their future and education has surfaced.
