[Correspondence] Psychological support for caregivers of refugees in Greece

According to the UN Refugee Agency,1 Greece saw more than 154 000 refugees arrive by sea in the first 4 months of 2016. Most refugees (40%) are children, 38% are men, and 20% are women, mostly from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Unfortunately, 132 deaths and 24 missing people were recorded in Greek territorial waters in the first 4 months of 2016. For refugees who finally reach a Greek island, specific hotspots have been created, where refugees are received, assisted, and registered.
