Seleni Trains Over 250 Healthcare Providers in Greece

Learn about the launch of our international maternal mental health training program

May 18, 2016

On May 13, 2016, the Seleni Institute hosted more than 250 healthcare providers at a free mental health care training at the Hellenic American College in Athens, Greece. The event was filled to capacity, and Seleni psychotherapist and psychoanalyst Haroula Ntalla trained participants on effective treatments for maternal mental health issues during a daylong intensive course entitled Maternal Mental Health: Latest Insights and Best Practices.

"We know when we support a mother, we support her spouse, her children, her family, and then future generations, breaking cycles of isolation, sadness, or anxiety," said Nitzia Logothetis, founder and executive chairwoman of the Seleni Institute. "With this program, we are thrilled to provide an opportunity for clinical and mental health professionals of Greece to deepen their ability to care for pregnant women and parents."

In addition to presenting critical information on screening and treatment methodologies, attendees had ample opportunity to ask questions and network with colleagues throughout the day. Participants were deeply moved by the presentation, and one commented afterward, "I just wish all the obstetricians and gynecologists in Greece had the lessons, thoughts, and emotions I had at Seleni's course. Thank you!"

This program marks the launch of Seleni's international training program, with a series of programs planned in South America, Europe, and Asia. Learn about our upcoming professional trainings, and sign up for our provider mailing list to stay updated!
