Seleni Trains HOME Project Staff on Mental Health
Athens, January 5, 2018 – Dr. Hara Ntalla, Clinical Director of the Seleni Institute visited Athens to train The HOME Project (HP) staff and help them build capacity to support the adolescents in shelters who have experienced trauma. HP staff who works on the ground absorbs most of the energy and emotion that the children have experienced, so they need to be supported and protected as well.
