Carmen Andreescu, MD (Associate Professor of Psychiatry), and Alex Dombrovski, MD (Pittsburgh Foundation Endowed Professor in Brain and Mind Research and Associate Professor of Psychiatry), are members of the Global Initiative on Psychiatry-USA (GIP-USA), the American branch of a global organization working to aid mental health professionals and the general population of Ukraine in dealing with the psychological consequences of the war. In May 2022, we spoke with Dr. Andreescu and Dr. Dombrovski to learn more about this crisis, as well as how to help.
