How to Care About Ukraine in Useful and Healthy Ways

July 28, 2022

Today we are joined by Mary Mykhaylova, a Ukrainian living in San Francisco. As a psychotherapist Mary has a unique perspective that can help us understand the suffering of the Ukrainian people due to Russian atrocities, how to avoid Russian propaganda, and the best way to help.


Mary Mykhaylova is a Ukrainian psychotherapist and essayist in San Francisco dedicated to making sure your Ukraine coverage is Ukraine-centered. Rampant Russian propaganda has planted false narratives for years and the West views Russian aggression and Ukraine's prospects through its own subjective lens. The solution: consuming a range of Ukrainian content.
