​Several adult education providers in the field of mental health in Greece rely on Community funding to support their activities. The process of submitting European programs is very demanding and time-consuming and requires specialized skills.
The Erasmus + KA1 project “ACCEUEDU: Accessing and managing EU funds for adult education providers in the Mental Health sector “is a project with the main objectives:
1) The cooperation between mental health institutions in Greece. (EPIONI, ​EDRA, PEPSAEE, EKPS P. Sakellaropoulos, Alzheimer Hellas and ​EPSEP)
2) The upgrade of the skills of the staff of Greek non-governmental organizations, active in the field of mental health, in the submitting and management of European Projects.
The project includes two five-day training seminars in Limassol provided by the educational organization Shipcon. The first will take place 23 – 27 November 2020 and​ ​the second 15-19 November 2021. The two seminars will be held in English and two participants will be trained per organization.
