The Greek Carers Network EPIONI is a national non-profit organization established in 2016 by a group of citizens who are caregivers or former caregivers. It is governed by its Board of Directors, supported by a Scientific Committee and an Audit Committee. We aim to help individuals who work as informal, unpaid carers of family members or friends who are struggling with mental illness. Our services include providing information about health issues and sharing of good practices, providing carers with advice and emotional support, as well as facilitating the development of problem-solving skills. We also strive to help service users identify and utilize available resources from their local communities.
To further promote and materialize our vision for carers in Greece, EPIONI is also actively involved in fostering fundamental policy changes through government legislation. With a firm commitment to improving the quality of our services, we strive as an organization to utilize the feedback we receive from our service users and clients. More specifically, quality monitoring and evaluation extend on three levels: The quality of our organized national meetings; the quality of collaboration (including overall project quality as perceived by the project partners); The quality of outputs that are subject to a review process and end-users evaluation. EPIONI is a member of several European and national networks that can support the dissemination and exploitation of project results. Among these Eurocarers, the European Network of Carers Organizations, Mental Health Europe and the European Association of Service Providers.
EPIONI is also registered in the Hellenic Register of Voluntary Non-Governmental Organizations.
