The dramatic experiences lived in Ukraine today become extremely important lessons for the whole world: the effects of the full-scale war. One of them – the ‘invisible’ – is the damage to mental health experienced by soldiers but also by many others affected by the war trauma. Another – the ‘visible’ – is the physical destruction of limbs, resulting in the need of prosthesis. The broad spectrum of problems, with PTSD as the most notorious, raises a broad range of conceptual and logistical issues of how to provide adequate rehabilitation of these war scars now and after the war. It is also a careful lesson for future generations. Both mental and physical scars of the past, present and future will be the focus of this panel discussion.
