Improving Young People’s Access to Mental Health Services in Greece

Children and adolescents in Greece, like their peers around the world, face a troubling lack of access to mental health care. The Child Mental Health Initiative seeks to address this by combining local and international expertise to empower frontline professionals and enhance care.

About the Project

Our mission is to enhance child and adolescent mental health care capacity and help to strengthen the infrastructure for the prevention, assessment, and treatment of mental health struggles faced by children and adolescents across Greece.


Focus on Children and Adolescents

The majority of all mental health and learning challenges arise during childhood but are too often overlooked and left untreated But with help and timely treatment children can thrive.


Promote Equity in Care

We believe every child deserves access to quality care. And we’re taking action. By making all our resources, trainings, and tools available at no cost to anyone, anywhere.


Integrate Greek and International Expertise

We are leveraging state of the art scientific and clinical research, conducted in Greece and around the world, to build the most effective resources and treatments for all children and adolescents.

Our Aims

Child Mental Health Network

Establish a country-wide Child Mental Health Network



Raise awareness about mental health

Enhance capacity for delivering science-supported mental health care


Technological Resources

Our Approach

We aspire to provide families important mental health support and offer free, evidence-based trainings to help facilitate science-based care throughout Greece.

To achieve this, the Initiative has five mutually reinforcing components:

Landscape Analysis

Conduct a robust landscape analysis to assess mental health care needs; assess barriers to care, understand clinical practice; standards of care; and training needs from mental health and psychosocial care providers and opportunities for training.


Build partnerships between clinicians across the country and internationally.

Network on Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH)

Create a country-wide network on Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) to enhance national capacity for caring for complex and acute cases, and pave the way for the uptake and scaling of science-based practices.

Basic and Specialized Training
