E.PSY.ME is committed to tackle social exclusion by enhancing service users’ social and mental wellbeing.

E.PSY.ME. services are based on the principles of social psychiatry, which consider mental disabilities as a phenomenon of multiple and complicated factors. It is our strong belief that negative current and future consequences can be limited by using constant, appropriate and effective scientific methods of prevention and intervention. The fundamental principles of all our services and action plans derive from this approach.

E.PSY.ME. aspires to develop – implement projects, programs and run Day care Centers carefully designed to address with scientific methodological adequacy and effectiveness the specific, multifaceted needs of the targeted population.
