The Mobile Mental Health Units of EPAPSY have been operating since 2004 in the island region of the Northeastern and Western Cyclades, providing their services in local health centers, premises provided by the Municipalities, nurseries, and other non-profit organizations.

Today we serve a total of 100,000 residents, who live in areas with limited access to psychosocial services and insufficient social care. There has been a significant increase in requests for intervention for families with severe psychosocial problems, as well as for children and adolescents with behavioral and emotional difficulties.

Our services are provided by special teams of mental health professionals, consisting of child and adolescent psychiatrists, adult psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, special educators and speech and language therapists.


Since the setup of our teams, we have provided our services to 12,488 adults, aged 18 to 93, and 3,046 children, aged 3 to 18 years, with an average age of 44 years. Our services include:

  • Diagnostic assessment and drug prescription
  • Counseling and psychotherapy 
  • Social support
  • Home visits
  • Integrated community and home treatment for people with severe psychosocial difficulties, with the aim of reducing relapses and facilitating access to the relevant services
  • Child psychiatric services, aiming at early detection of psychosocial difficulties


Our actions are realized in collaboration with the local community and include:

  • Support of vulnerable social groups and liaison with vocational and social actors
  • Liaison with primary healthcare, for addressing incidents more effectively
  • Investigative actions to identify the needs and assess the provided services, aiming at better interventions
  • Programs for promoting mental health and educating the general public, in educational institutions and local social organizations
  • Conferences and workshops on mental health issues for the general public and for professionals in contact with vulnerable groups with psychosocial problems
