EPAPSY (Association for Regional Development and Mental Healthcare) was established in 1988, on the initiative of Prof. Stelios Stylianidis; since then, it is continuously active aiming to offer an alternative model of psychosocial care to the community based on the principles of Social Psychiatry and Psychosocial Rehabilitation.

Especially during the last years, having assumed the scientific and administrative responsibility for running in total twenty-three accommodation units of psychosocial rehabilitation, two mobile units of mental healthcare in the Cyclades islands and one day care center, EPAPSY is innovating with the development of a network of services and professionals working for the purposes of social psychiatry.

EPAPSY has supported the establishment and function of the Social Cooperative of Limited Liability in the 5 th Attica District for Mental Healthcare provision, in the administrative Region of Central Greece and the city of Trikala, as well as local associations of mental health (in Chalkida, the northern suburbs of Athens, the Region of Voiotia).
