PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT 2018-11-20T10:17:22+00:00

OUR NEEDS

Socio-cultural participation

Sense of community is fundamental to the feeling of belonging, which aids integration.

Our activities -like volunteering, hobbies and social events– help participants to build a stable support network and improve connects with locals, which impacts overall psychological well-being.

Effective Referral Pathways

Due to previous trauma, and compounded by long periods of uncertainty and stressful camp life, every single refugee in Greece is in need of some kind of psychological counselling.

Despite their existence, psychological counselling services are often inaccessible, mostly due to the stigma associated with seeking this kind of help.

We connect directly with appropriate organisations and provide the extra accountability to attend.

HOW DO WE WORK?

Getting active to improve mental health

Actions

1. We meet each participant individually in order to identify their basic needs, and short and long term goals.

2. After determining skills, knowledge and interests, we work on a plan of activities that suits these preferences.

3. We create the necessary connections in Athens, assist with any subscription fees and provide positive motivation and accountability.

4. If an activity doesn’t exist, we help to promote new social initiatives within our network and create more opportunities.
