The grant supports the operation and expansion of the tele-psychogeriatric unit program, which includes programs in different municipalities, as well as the implementation and promotion of non-pharmaceutical treatments, the education of generalist physicians in treating depression and dementia, and the research/evaluation of tele-psychiatry.
The University of Athens Aeginitio Hospital was founded in 1904, and it is the largest neurological and psychiatric hospital in Athens. The tele-psychiatry unit has been in operation since 2004. The expansion of the program will offer access to treatment to a large number of individuals throughout Greece, suffering from dementia and depression.
