The Cairnmillar Institute in Melbourne is offering free counselling and mental health services in Greek during the coronavirus crisis, to support Greek migrants and those who speak Greek as their mother tongue.

The Hellenic Community of Melbourne released a statement today in support of the psychological support program, explaining that it will provide essential support to struggling individuals.

“Through this program, people will get free access to counselling sessions by phone or conference call with provisional psychologists,” the statement reads.

“For the Greek community, this program is also offered in Greek. You do not need to have a medical plan or paper from a doctor. You can simply call 1800 391 393 and request an appointment with Ms Myrto for the Greek support program.”

Director of the Greek support program, Ms Myrto, said the sessions are offered to all Greeks in Australia and can be accessed from anywhere in the country.

“Especially at this time of year, with the COVID-19 crisis, our mental health needs to be at the forefront, and access to psychological support services is very important, especially for those in need,” Ms Myrto stressed.

“This program was launched in Greek to provide such services in the mother tongue of those who do not have easy access to these services due to a language barrier or different culture.”
