About the Project
In 2018, Humanity Crew launched its services in Athens, Greece. Our mental health team provides MHPSS and expert workshops in various centers and shelters for refugees. Our partner centers vary from community day centers, to women’s shelters, to shelters for unaccompanied minors.
Our operations in Athens are provided with a focus on the mother tongue of refugees and are carried out by a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health professionals, and qualified volunteers. Our service providers are experts in treating victims of trauma and conflict and are in a unique position to provide direct linguistically and culturally adapted support, utilizing their own social and cultural background.
Currently, in all our host organizations we are responsible to provide MHPSS in Arabic for the refugees through community-based activities, focus group sessions, and individual sessions.
