The report is a study of the psychosocial work being carried out at various women's centres in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia. More than 200 women were interviewed about their health and financial status five years after the end of the Balkan war. The study shows how psychosocial support groups have influenced women in a positive manner and improved their lives by giving them the ability to process what they have been through during the war and improve their self-esteem.
