- The campaign is calling UK-based Ukrainians to take part in the testing, further shaping its effectiveness and providing critical insights into a range of neurological conditions.
The campaign further highlights how the utilization of tech removes significant barriers to accessing appropriate care.
Health Tech Without Borders, Inc. (HTWB), in collaboration with Sora Union and Mindstep, proudly launches a free mental health app for displaced people from Ukraine, living in the United Kingdom (UK).
“Mindstep for Ukraine” provides UK-based Ukrainians with access to gold-standard assessments and tools for neurological and mental health conditions. To enhance effectiveness, the teams encourage users to sign up, play a pivotal role in refining the app, and contribute critical insights into neurological conditions.
Globally, displaced people face unique challenges and barriers to accessing comprehensive healthcare and mental health services. This includes difficulties in navigating unfamiliar community services, language barriers, limited understanding of government assistance, and fear of being judged when asking for help.

Mindstep for Ukraine addresses population and location-specific challenges. By efficiently providing this support, it contributes to local communities, ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to flourish and make positive contributions to society regardless of their circumstances.
