At the end of 2021 the European Profile for Peer Support Workers Programme was completed whose aim was to develop European profiles for the role of Peer-Worker, the required skills profile, and the framework of their introduction and incorporation in mental health organisations.

During the year, the SSP P. Sakellaropoulos coordinated and implemented two projects of the Programme: the guidelines for the training and development of the peer-worker specialist position on both a national and European level. In addition, two webinars were organised for the dissemination of the projects of the Programme and the presentation of the situation in Greece (July 1st, 2021) and for the sensitisation, awareness-raising and networking on a national level for Peer Support Workers (September 23rd, 2021).  

The Prorgamme is implemented at the Prefecture of Thrace
