Project Objectives:

1. Needs Assessment: The project will kick off with an assessment of the needs of media professionals. A needs assessment methodology will be developed through collaboration with an experienced professional team. The toolkit will comprise in-depth interviews and anonymous questionnaires. The intention is to conduct interviews with a minimum of 20 journalists, editors, media content creators, and media representatives involved in content creation. The aim of this study is to highlight the increasing need for psychological support. Additionally, it’s envisaged to engage an international specialist as a consultant with experience in working within the media sector in conflict zones.
2. Psychological Counseling: As part of the project, media workers will have access to free individual psychological services. They will be able to select psychologists provided by the project and contact them directly. Confidentiality of personal data will be strictly upheld during the provision of psychological services. The specially developed methodology ensures that there is no leakage of personal data from the psychologist to the project team.
