Stress in Ukrainian Children

The war in Ukraine began on the 24th of February 2022. With much of the fighting occurring on Ukrainian soil, the war has severely impacted the lives of all the country’s citizens. Children have been greatly affected by the war, facing disruptions to key pillars of their lives such as their routines, education, families, and place of residence.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the stress levels experienced by children aged 12 and under in a war-affected context, as reported by their parents or primary caregivers. The study aimed to understand the prevalence of stress among children, identify potential changes in stress levels since the onset of the conflict, and examine the impact of stress on various aspects of children's lives, such as school performance and outlook on the future. Additionally, the study explores the negative coping strategies that children may employ in response to stress, which can further affect their mental health and well-being.
