  1. *Includes Psychiatric Hospitals in full operation. Additionally the University Psychiatric Hospital “Aiginition” operates but does not have long-stay units.
  2. ** It is not reported in the First Revision of Psychargos (Ministry of Health & Social Solidarity 2001) neither the baseline number in 2001 nor the target-number for the development of Child-Psychiatric Units in General Hospitals. Therefore the success rate cannot be deduced.
  3. ***According to the First Revision of Psychargos (Ministry of Health & Social Solidarity 2001) the mental health centers for children were 22 in 2001. However, according to data provided by the Mental Health Directorate, in 2010 there were only 10 centers (mental health centers for adults that also provide services for children have not been included). Therefore the success rate cannot be deduced.
