Abstract

The chronic mentally ill in Greece are primarily cared for in large public mental hospitals or by their families because of the absence of community-based alternatives and the centralization of existing services in Athens and Thessaloniki. However, in the last decade new legislation to improve the lives of the chronically ill has been passed, additional day care facilities have been opened, and the development of decentralized mental health services has been scheduled by the National Health System. A case report illustrates the care provided at Greece's first community mental health center, established in 1979 in Athens.
