Babel Day Centre provides mental health service to migrants (individuals, families, children, adolescents and groups since 2007 in Athens, Greece and rather in Kipseli, maybe the most multicultural neighborhood of the city.
Babel’s main mission is the mental healthcare of migrants (regardless their legal or residence status) living in Athens and distinguished with the triple scheme of the migrant or refugee condition, a different ethno-cultural background and the experience of mental disorder.
Towards this, Babel endeavors to create a home (including assistance for material conditions) where people can be heard, understood and supported as individuals, as a couple, family or group with a mental health request. Within that home every person can retain or make their meaning for the loss of the original home and the expectations for a new personal, family or social life.
Emphasis is given to a customized approach and an individual treatment plan; both evolved as a result of a consultation between the professionals and the beneficiary. A beneficiary-centered network is set up every time so that more needs are met.
